I do not recall that but I ate a low residue diet for about a month after the surgery so I pooped less. Sorry that is happening to you. I was not able to go out and do errands for 3 weeks because the pressure caused pain. I did not feel 100% normal until 4.5 months had passed.

I know it is rough. I had moments where I worried it did not work or I had somehow gotten another fissure for a few months. I still have to go back to the bathroom and wipe again about 30 mins after I have gone. Definitely give it a good month. Are you taking stool softeners or any meds?

Yes, I am taking Non Steroids (NSAID) Pain Meds twice a day along with antacid, herbal antibiotic and anti-anxiety pills. In terms of Stool softener, I am taking a herbal mix which is indigenous to Indian subcontinent along with Psyllium Husk. I am thinking on cutting down on Anxiety Pill and the softeners as 4/5 painful BMs are draining me to do anything entire day... What do you think ?

Softeners never did me any good. I just drank a ton of water.

Hi Guys, just wanted to ask you guys if any one has had issues with lot of blood during BM when prescribed Flagyl (Metridonazole) ???
I was prescribed yesterday morning by my CRS out of the blue during my 1st follow up post-op. I have taken just 2 doses and my BMs have been a blood bath. Sorry for being gory but I am worried ... Is this normal ? I am taking ibuprofen 400 also....
