6 days ago I had a 2 anal fissurectomy and one hemorrhoidectomy, requiring cauterization and stitches. I consulted with the Proctologist, she made it seem like it was very routine and something that is quite common. I have never known anyone to have one. He said they would put me under general anesthesia and it would be over in about 30 minutes. We didn't really have any discussion about post-op expectations. The huge mistake on my part. The last six days have been pure hell. I did make it to work one entire day, and by the time I got home I regretted every moment of it. Every BM is worse than the last one, and they all look like something out of the scene of the movie Carrie. And I typically need to sleep for an hour and a half after 8 p.m. It is painful and exhausting. I scream and cry like a child just to make it through each bowel movement. I feel so depressed and defeated hearing that it takes people months and months and months just to get back to normal. I was really hoping those were just uncommon responses, but I fear that that's not typical instead of the exception. Has anyone had a more positive experience, and if so what did you do to get through it?
