Leaking after hemorrhoid surgery

Postby LTC079 » 30 Jan 2016, 14:32

I had a stapled hemorrhoid surgery for an external thrombosed hemorrhoid 4 months ago. I've been leaking small amounts of a brown/yellow fluid ever since.

About a month ago I went to my doctor and he gave me a skin cream, suppositories for proctitis and a fiber supplement. He told that this doesn't have to do with my sphincter and that it's the wound not healing properly because of hard stool. These stopped a pain-like annoyance I had but they didn't help with the leaking. By following a very high fiber diet I've normalized my BM duration and my stool softness but this doesn't seem to have any profound effect.

Obviously I'm going to see my doctor soon but I still need to share my story with someone. Is it possible that I may have something else like a fistula or something permanent? Is this kind of complication common in stapled surgeries?

Thank you in advance.

I had banding and have the same issue but the leaking burns badly. My doctor has no answer so I just roll up toilet paper between my cheeks to absorb it.
Suffering since June 2013 :(

Methods tried:
Sitz Baths
GTN cream - awful migraines!
Manuka Honey / Coconut oil / Aloe
Vitamin E suppositories
Tablets (Fiber, Cod liver oil with vit A+D, Multi vits)my + tag excision X 2
Dilatiazem - so far so good.
