After suffering from a chronic fissure I ended up having the fissurectomy last Monday. I am 10 days post op and feel worse than ever. The first few days were fine and then the pain started coming on strong about the 5th day. I made the HORRIBLE mistake of taking pain meds w/o stool softeners (they were making me super sick) and by time I realized it has been 7 days without a BM. It was, as you can imagine, the most horrible pain finally going. It took 5 hours, stool softeners and milk of magnesium to go. I thought I was going to pass out from the pain. I am relieved from the stopped up pain, but I am terrified I messed some internal incisions going. I've been in horrible pain since I went. And now I'm extremely sore down there from continuously going from all of that medicine. The muscles inside have been throbbing non stop. Only thing that helps is hot baths. I am a teacher and did not have much time off so I went back to work a week after surgery and I am in agony all day. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've had kidney stones twice (so big they were stuck & had to be blasted) & nothing compares to the pain of a fissure or the recovery of having the fossurectomy surgery. Thanks in advance!!! 😊
