My LIS experience

Postby Madpain » 25 Jul 2014, 13:36

Couple hours post op now. Pain after procedure was pretty bad. Started out uncomfortable from sitting on the hospital gurney. Had to pace around for a bit until pain meds kicked in. Was prescribed Percocet. Pain has died immensely but I'm a bit out of it. Will update later in hopes my experience can help some others.

Congrats on your LIS, mp! Did you just get LIS or a fissurectomy or tag removal, too? I took Vicodin after my LIS for a while and it helped. Although I just had a tooth pulled on Monday and have taken far more Vicodin for that than I did for my butt. Best of luck to you and keep us posted!

Just the LIS. I had asked my surgeon about fissurectomy and he said it's an out of date procedure. Pain has been barely noticeable since first post. Feel a bm comming on so that's the real test.

Day 2. First bm. I felt like my rear was ripping, there was a decent amount of blood on baby wipe after. I didn't need any more pain meds until now.

Sorry to hear that, hope it gets better soon!

My surgeon also said fissurectomies were out of date which is odd cause so many people on here still get them.

Yes I thought it was odd as well. He was actually a bid more rude about it saying "people who talk about fissurectomies don't know what they are doing.".

So far no pain since bm or any more urges to go. No bleeding or other drainage either. It is crazy to think how desperate I am to get rid of this problem.

Quick update. So far the lis has been instant relief from the af. There is still some pain with a bum but I don't need meds anymore. Other than tenderness at surgery site this has cleared up the problem from what I can tell. I know it's still early but man I haven't felt this hopeful for a long ass time.

It's great being able to sit and do things without the damn fissure ruining everything. Just for the week of peace it has bought me this surgery is worth it. Only thing bothering me is the discharge. Very foul looking and smelling. Small price to pay so far.
