TB, I had two fissures cauterized, a papilla, a tag, and an external hemorrhoid removed. I’m post op 12 days. It really hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. But I’ll be honest, I was given an Exparel shot and I didn’t feel much the first 5 days or so. I also think the doc cauterizing things helped. Also, I will tell you the recovery has not been straightforward. I have good days and bad days. The pain from the fissures and spasms was way worse than anything from this recovery...so far anyhow.

Thanks Tryingtorelax, I am interested in this exparel shot! It would amazing to be numb the first few days. No idea what I will be given but let's see. My doc seems to think the pain will be minimal and only ibuprofen will be needed but I am ready for anything. Looking forward to hopefully putting those fissure spasms behind me!

I don’t know what negative side effects the shot has but I was extremely grateful for it.

Hi Tryingtorelax,

After getting your tag removed, did it come back?

I am only 19 days post op so no so far?? I do have a little bit of extra skin/tissue there. The surgery also caused a new external hemorrhoid. I guess time will tell if it comes back.
