Hi Mystify,
Glad to hear you have had the surgery! It's a big step towards recovery. I had LIS and fissurectomy surgery a few months ago and healed after 3 weeks. The second day was the worst with the pain. In order to counteract the painkillers, I drank a LOT of water, fruits, salads, prunes at night, Miralax, and colace.
Not sure about your IBS, but you should have at lease one BM a day. For the discharge which is normal for a wound to heal, I used Tucks, gauze in between my cheeks, sitz bath after BM, and ice packs to keep swelling down and help ease pain. I tried to keep clean gauze on the area as much as possible. It will soak up any discharge and prevent infection as well as wiping with Tucks and maybe using a blow dryer after sitz bath.
Good luck!

Okay. Using the gauze will help but it not necessary. The gauze is meant to breathe though. It will soak up the wetness and allow the area to breathe. Kind of like a pantiliner!
I used it for a few weeks even after there was no oozing. My stitches bothered me if I didn't have gauze between my cheeks!
