Severe bleeding 10 days post LIS

Postby HLT2 » 09 Apr 2019, 12:54

Hi, I am new here, scared and need support. I’m a 44 year old female who suffered with an anal fissure for almost 2 years. I finally opted for surgery which I had on March 29 2019. The first few days weren’t bad. I was given ibuprofen, Percocet and Valium for pain and spasms. I cut down the Percocet to just one a day after BMs on Monday and only took Valium if I had spasms. On Saturday, the fissure pain came back hard and I had a lot of blood on my stool. Pain all day Sunday. Then yesterday I had to bouts of extremely bloody diarrhea to the point the blood was dripping and running out. I came very close to passing out. I laid down for an hour and the faintness passed. I took one Percocet to help with the terrible pain and to sleep. I’ll also add that I had lots of bleeding before surgery and two weeks prior was in the hospital for a blood transfusion. I’m currently waiting for a call back from my surgeon. Just wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this. Thank you, S

That sounds awful, I'm sorry. It's probably hemorrhoids, but you really need medical attention to figure out what's going on. It may be blood vessel that has been damaged. Please let us know how you get on.

Thank you for the responses. Im going to the GI today at my surgeons recommendation. He does not seem to think the LIS or fissure alone should cause that extreme amount of bleeding. I’ve cut back the stool softeners just out of fear of a bad episode of diaherria again. Still have blood with any BM, but not as terrible as with the diaherria. Still lots of fissure pain almost 2 weeks since surgery.
