Squatty Potty?

Postby AJStyles » 27 May 2017, 22:05

Anyone got good experience with a Squatty potty? I always feel incomplete after BM and i usually sit for 30-35 minutes on the toilet and still feeling unfinished. (Using stool softeners drinking lots of water but still always have that incomplete feeling) Would a squatty potty help? I dont really think so but alot of people say positive things about it. What do you guys think? i am 7 week POST Lis. Still in big pain.

I've been using the squat position for a while, and it seems to help prevent further injury to the fissure. However, I haven't really noticed that it allows for more complete voiding of the bowels.
8/09 - 12/10: fissure, cured by LIS/fissurectomy
1/17 - present: fissure/hemms, healed but pain remained, 3 CRSs (nifedipine, infrared coag) were no help, cold dilating >= 1" helped but still have pain when sitting
