Jbl, they are the dissolving type mine just weren't dissolving and they were really bothering me at the 4 week point. I do feel so much better having them out. They were really pulling and pinching.

Wow, interesting. How long was it supposed to take for them to dissolve?

She said they could have stayed in another month. That would have been awful!

How are you doing now? Do you still have spasms?

Hi Jbl, I'm not having spasms. Your recovery so far is amazing! I could never have went swimming so soon after surgery.

I feel like the hydrocortisone actually irritated the area more. My incision site feels better just having the stitches out but my fissure spot is feeling irritated again. I don't know if it's the cream or what. It wasn't hurting before the hydrocortisone cream. Maybe it dried me out too much. I'm not a fan of that cream anyway. I don't know. For now I went back to not putting anything on it and see what happens. So far still irritated.

Ya sometimes I think all the creams can aggravate things. I do feel lucky with my recovery although on day 3 I was freaking out because I still had such bad spasms. But then it just got better and really fast. I think since I just had LIS, I had an easier recovery. Sounds like you are on the right track, though. I'm sure the irritation will settle down soon!

5 weeks 3 days: Still irritated at the fissure site mostly when sitting. No pain on bms. I'm taking just a little miralax at night and that is working so far. I've been using either Calmoseptine or Desitin and I think they are causing problems just like the hydrocortisone did. I think I'm going to not put anything on my bum and see what that does. Maybe it just needs a rest! I honestly can't say at this point that I'm glad a had this surgery. I don't feel any better. I just want my life back!!!

I'm sorry to hear that! What does your doctor say about all this? It is still very early days. I remember reading about a woman whose incision site took 3 months to heal but she felt great afterwards and was very happy she did the surgery.
