    that is,the best decision you made to go for surgery.The bleeding will not last long,I went back to work in 2days,I just packed a clean dressing to my bum every 3hours or so.I also recovered with no pain,just,a bit of bleeding and seeping first few days

    U have to take it easy

    Ask ur dr for longer time off or limited duty at work

    This is one of the worse surgeries u could have

    Hi i am so happy for you it’s over. Keep going the bleeding will be there. Mine was for 6 months. I was pain free straight after LIS went work in 5 days time. Keep with your diet try to be medication free slowly. Specially stool softeners. Cut them slowly. Good luck
