No! No spasms and highest pain intensity being a 1! More like a bruise-like pain. Much different then I expected.

2 bms today. Finally experiencing pain. Im not sure where the incision is so i cant say but i assume it is that that is stinging. Maybe for a minute or 2 after bm. 4/10. Sitz baths are heaven. :)

I think the incision is usually on the left. Sounds like you are doing great! And good luck with your surgery, Ray!

Ugh. Things were so freaking awesome. Now i'm trying to wean off the clearlax and my stools turn rock hard again. I feel like I will be on this damn powder forever. Its so frustrating. Had a bm today. Painful (fissure site) and blood again. I can't tell where the incision site is but someone mentioned on the Left? I did feel a slight sting there today so ill assume that was it, which means its the fissure causing me grief again. *sigh*

You won't be on the powder forever but you probably should give it more time. I'm still on all the miralax/softeners and I'm almost 6 weeks out. Going to start the weaning process next week but started first by getting my diet completely back to normal. Give it more time!
