I had lateral sphincterotomy done 3 days ago. 3.5 to be exact as it's the middle of the night right now. I did a huge mistake of not checking the anal area after the surgery before going for my first BM. After it, as i was cleaning myself using wet hands, I noticed that I have what seemed like a prolapse, but one I could not easily push back, and since I didn't know if this is normal after the operation or not, I didn't insist. But after these 3.5 days the blood vessels have only increased in size, and in spite of all the NSAIDs, local lydocaine and oral tramadol, the pain is persistent and now the itching has started and it is becoming unbearable. Right now.
I tried to explain the situation on the phone yesterday to my surgeon but he didn't seem to understand and I took it that it is probably just the inflammation after the surgery. But since not even Tramadol seems to be calming down the pain, and since now I am starting to have itching as well, I am very unsure of what to do.
Should I try to push in what seems to be prolapsed blood vessels?
Another thing: before the surgery, one thing I did after every defecation was a sitz bath. This helped me a great deal to relax my anus, but I was told not to do this after my surgery. I am thinking of going against my surgeon's advice for one time just to see if I can releave the pressure and pain. Thoughts?
