Hello when I had a fisurectomy, botox & sentinel piles removed I had an ache & was sore for a couple of weeks. I think most of the pain I got was from the sentinel pile removal! Make sure you take something to 'soften' your poo as this will help (I had 1 sachet of movicol) for a few weeks.

Thank you! I eat a very high fiber diet so I haven’t been taking any stool softeners but I’m regular and soft ☺️

I called the dr today and they asked that I come in on Thursday just to be sure I’m healing proper.
Another question, is the “leakage” normal? It seems like after I have a bm I have to go back and clean up all day long.

Discharge is normal, some people have it for two three weeks, don't worry. You will be sore for a few weeks especially if you sit for more than half hour at a time. Everyone is different but for me it took about 7 weeks to be able to sit all day at my desk and feel nothing. Definitely ask your doc what exactly was done to you and what should you expect during recovery. I can't believe you weren't provided with post operative care instructions.

Thank you. It’s funny when I called the receptionist told me I should not be in pain anymore at all.
Looking forward to get details tomorrow.

Yes I did and they removed the sentinel piles. It’s funny your timing because I’ve been healing great besides today I am in a bit of pain it’s very sore. I’m hoping that is all normal.

Still sore. Took a look down there yesterday and noticed a larg red bump which I think is a hemmeroid. Along with another sentinel pile looking thing. I think I’m going to make another appointment soon.

Katie if your breastfeeding good on you but once your stopped breastfeeding you can expect things to get better breastfeeding lowers estragon which makes your skin poor I wouldn't say stop breastfeeding as it's best for baby but just know it will improve later it helped me once I stopped feeding when baby was 1 year old make sure your drinking heaps of water if your breastfeeding if your not breastfeeding that's fine too : ) hopefully your doctor can advise you on what to do maybe you just need more time I've only had Botox an still uncomfortable an seeing blood with bms
