Thank you for letting me know. It's really nice to hear that you're doing great less than two weeks after your surgery!

Thanks kv12! I agree it was a good decision. Had 4 or 5 good days, but had a formed BM today and back to pain. Not as bad as it was originally, but still bad enough to limit my walking. Looking forward to getting the LIS done on Wednesday.

Hope it all goes well for you. I'm now 14 days post op and had bm without pain today. I've had a little discomfort but mo need for any pain relief. Saw my consultant today, he said that the skin tag had a hole in it which caused a fistula from there to inside. I also had a large fissure at the fistula site and several each side. It's no wonder I was in pain.

I found that a light showering down there was MUCH more soothing than sitz baths but consultant has told me to also take tepid salt baths to assist the healing as he excised a lot in the same area. Expect some discharge as it is the wounds healing, it will stop.

You will feel better after a few days.

Thanks a lot for the wishes Kv12. It is wonderful that that you did not have any pain after the BM in 2 weeks. I had 2 fissures and had been in a lot of pain until one of them healed. The other is not healing. I can imagine that you must have been in a lot of pain with multiple fissures and the fistula. Good luck and hope you heal completely soon

So no passing glass anymore kv12? That's the part I'm sick to death of.

Thanks a lot GG. Will be leaving in 30mins!

One more question for everybody. Is it ok to use the squatty potty immediately after LIS or does it cause any problem? I intend to use it for the longer term. But wanted to make sure there is no problem using it right after LIS. Don't want too much pressure or anything. Thx!

So my LIS is done. No pain right now. I was told that they have given me a long lasting anaesthetic which would last for about 18 hours. Taking 2 extra strength tylenols every 6 hours. Not had to take anything stronger so far. Now waiting for the dreaded first BM. Hoping it is no too painful!
