Post Op Cleanliness

Postby IBSCSufferer » 08 Oct 2017, 19:28

I had my anal fissure removal and hemorrhoidectomy 1 year ago and since surgery, I have been having a hard time staying clean. Even with the tiniest of BMs, I have to wipe 5-6 times before the toilet paper is clean. And even then, I still find stains in my underwear if I don't wear a panty liner.
Is anyone else having this problem post-op?
Thanks in advance!

So sorry that you are having to deal with staining. It sounds unpleasant and you would think that one year later it would have cleared up. Have you had a partial LIS, that is where they only cut to the length of the fissure? With that surgery the muscle slowly regains strength so hopefully your leakage issue will go away in the future. Has there been any improvement at all over the past year?
