That is all good news! The way I feel now I can't imagine! Surgery was exactly a week ago.

I agree, I was 2nd guessing my choice by the 2nd day. Lots of sitz baths , bed rest if you can and keep those stools soft

Szaap- you have given me some hope though. Thanks so much. What were you taking for pain relief? Once a day I am taking a 1/4 of a percoset- otherwise celebrex or ibuprofin. Surgeon said tylenol and I would be good in three days! His nurse and assistant gave me a script and rolled their eyes! (and I am not telling my husband then part about sex on day 10! I can not even imagine!

Ha!!!! The sex was actually a nice stress release from this whole thing! But you go at your own pace. I had a script for Percocet but I come from a family of addicts and didnt want to play with fire. I took 2 extra strength tylenol every 4 hrs . The pain was intense the first week but for me it died down by the 2nd. Seriously, use a stool when having a bm. Put your feet on it and lean forward with your knees as far up towards your chin as possible. I REFUSE to get any more hemmoroids! Also, do kegels with your rectum while in the sitz bath after each BM. I hope you feel better soon!

had my two week check -in. Still have the pre-surgery bump but doc not interested/concerned. Just sort of rambled about surgical sites healing and I shouldn't "obsess" about stuff. :-( All else going well, but I will admit I don't like that bump- could well be scar tissue, but certainty would be nice.

from what I can see- the site looks fine. Improves daily. But there is this little bump- like leftover hemm or something. Maybe it has to do with inflammation of then entrance to incision. I just wish I completely understood. I hate having questions glossed over. Knowledge is sanity for me.
How are you doing?

Do you have skin tags? I had one in addition to the fistula and hemmoroid, I believe mine is still there. I feel like I might need to take a peak.
