I am 6 days post op .... I have been battling this for years
And decided to fix it!!! Wow I never imagined the pain
I was 4 days without a BM the pressure was excruciating
I called the dr office repeatedly... the told me to take stool softener after the fact... 4 days of Percocet I could not have a BM . I could not take the pressure my legs were going numb I was scared to death! I ended up in the ER feeling impacted. After years of constipation I knew the feeling! Post op the ER Doc after
Giving me multiple shots directly into my anus!! With stitches and all ... good god you can't imagine.. I was sewn so tight and the swelling I could never have had a BM he couldn't even get his finger in .. he was trying to stretch my skin ... I did not want that after going through all this for him to rip out the stitching?? Not sure if I'd ever do it again at this time.... They finally gave me an enama I felt relief it was by far the worst pain I have ever had in my life.... my entire body was shaking from the pain. It was violent! Sent me home with ibuprofen... every little tiny BM is a production stinging burning pressure... if you decide to move forward get prepared!!! Stool softener stool softener!! Stay ahead of the pain (the opioids ) caused more harm than good for me!!! I'm still recovering I'll let you know in a few days how I'm progressing!!!
