Naina, do you still take softeners to help heal the wound? Do you apply some ointment so it prevents infection? You must do everything possible to help your body.

I'm taking miralax daily.
It's an open wound now so the CRS didn't give me any ointment.
It's still leaking a lot of puss.

For open wounds I would use a cream or Manuka honey if you can bare the stinging a few seconds. A colleague from this forum recommended Boroline, which I tried and I like a lot. It is very soothing and, at least on open wounds on hands, helps tremendously with speeding up the healing.

Naina, I wish I could take away all your pain. The only thing i can do is to pray for you to get better soon.
Try to keep your stools as loose as possible for a few weeks, you must not risk anything during this time. Loose to wattery is what you need now!

How are you doing?

sorry i just noticed this .
im doing ok so far, some days pain comes back after bm, some days are fine..it's just fluctuates, the wound is like 98% healed , but only this tiny lump still gives me discomfort during bm and after , it gives the same burning sensation of the fissure.every now and then i get very tiny leaks also.
with all that said the bm itself isnt painful as it was before the surgery ,just hoping for this collaterals to go away.
i hope you get well soon.
