Hi! I'm hoping someone in here has been through a similar experience as I have been through and can give me some pointers on what to expect or what helped you.
About a month ago, I got the Botox treatment for my Anal fissure. It was a painful recovery because I had problems with constipation but once they was controlled things got better. Afterwards I developed a very painful skin tag. The tag wasn't so big but it was swollen, irritating and bleeding. I kept contacting the doctor who kept having the nurses peek at it and all they would tell me is keep it clean, keep stools soft and it will eventually go away. The pain just kept getting worse so I decided to see another doctor who suggested to have it removed.
This doctor told me he would remove the skin tag under general anesthesia would do a rectal exam and see if the fissure healed, if not he will do the Sphincterotomy and if he sees any hemorrhoids he would remove that also.
My surgery was yesterday and my poor little heart was nervous. I was hoping that I would be told the fissure healed and no hemorrhoids were found, but that wasn't the case.
He told me there were several hemorrhoids and he did the Sphincterotomy because the fissure was still there and of course removed the skin tag.
Well, it's only been yesterday and I'm drinking nothing but liquids, in fact I've been in liquids in the past 2 days because of this procedure. I don't want to get constipated. As of now I feel a throbbing burning sensation and I'm dreading my first bowel movement. I know pain is inevitable but I'm terrified about what will happen.
Has anyone had this procedure done or something similar done that can maybe give me some pointers?
My anxiety level is pretty high right now so any words of encouragement would help. Thanks guys!
