Hi Paul, Did they give you any instructions after surgery, are you taking any pain meds? Pain meds can be very constipating. You need to be taking a stool softener and drinking more liquids throughout the day. This will help with your bms. Most people here take miralax or milk of magnesia or lactulose. Stay away from bulking fiber until you are healed. They make your stool larger and while you're healing it's better not to over stretch the area. So glad your surgery is behind you and you can focus on getting back to your normal life. Take care, Suzy

Hello all, Male 43 here
I had a discomfort and a zit like thing near my anus for months, until it got infected and had to drain it of blood.
Then the pain stopped but had pressure and discomfort in my anus, not actual pain during BM, but pressure ,specially when i walk and sit, so stayed home for a long time. Mostly lying down.
I went to a doctor he he performed ana- scope thingy and told me that the fistula is still there but small and i had anal fissure.
Had an operation about a month a go stayed home again because of the pain after, the BM pain got better after a week.
But still have discomfort in my anus when i sit and walk. Its pressure. I am worried it may be something else!! And that this will not go away!!
Sometimes i feel the sensation reaches to my penis region.
I also had a kidney stone the whole time and it just got out two weeks ago.
I stay home a lot and not going out, because it is uncomfortable, doctor says i should move more and staying i bed will not help. It that true?
Please help everyone
