Been two weeks and a day since my procedure. Pain has subsided a lot. saw the surgeon today and he said everything looks good. It should keep improving. I never want to endure this again.

sum discharge should be fine....i continued to have sum... say 2-4 drops on the small pack i put at the anal area. it continued for almost 17-18 days post op. the discharge was mostly sticky and cream- yellow colored. gradually it gets better.
unless the color quanitiy of ur discharge is not changing much , u shud not worry, i think.

That's what it looks like. Just hope it's not infected.

Any suggestions on creams to use to help the healing along? I have this Dr. Wheatgrass cream.

20 weeks for me and still not completely healed.And I still have seepage issues , very frustrated , I do also sometimes have the feeling that the evacuation is not complete. Dr says that the leakage will go away when its healed, but when?? Now he is talking about doing a 5 min procedure which he could do on a Friday and could go back to work on Monday, a clean out to help it finish healing , BUT i still would need to go under anesthesia. i really dont want to do another procedure considering long this thing is taking to heal,BUT i want the leakage to stop, and to stop having to have blotters in my underwear. Anyone have simiilar issues?

I am also considering getting a second opinion about the healing and leakage issues. Any thoughts on that?
Thanks very much

I don't have any thoughts on leakage unfortunately as i had my lis few days ago, but I'm curious to know if your dr said something concerning the feeling of not completed evacuation. This is how I feel each day, particularly today and it's really annoying. It's like if something would "push" down there but I don't feel I need to go to the bathroom.
