But I didn’t think it would be this intense. Here are a few tips to ease the pain. Once frozen, the diapers are curved perfectly to your anus area and won’t drip as it melts either because the gel is designed to hold in liquid. I use one diaper several times before tossing. I bought two big squirt bottles at the drug store and fill them up before any bowel movements. It relieves the pain and itching that come later in the healing process. Do this 2-3 times a day and definitely after a bowel movement.
Sometimes, I have my bowel movements in the sitz bath to ease the pain. Just remember to rinse it with soap and hot water right away if you have a bowel movement in there so you don’t sit in fecal water and develop a uti on top of everything else. No starchy foods and anything binding! These tips were given to me by the maternity nurses after I had a baby, but they are completely relevant here and I am especially grateful for the ice pack diaper trick! It was the ONLY way an ice pack can be applied to that anus area and not to my butt cheeks. BTW– get all this ready, especially the diaper ice packs before surgery so you will have it immediately after you come home from surgery. I had my surgery 9 days ago and am still in agony. I run a bath before I have a BM and jump in as soon as I’m done.
The bath feels good at the time but after when I’m laying down the pain is unreal. It feels like my insides are falling out. My surgeon led me to believe I’d be up running around after 5 daysHA! I went to see him after the 5 days was up because I was still in agonyhe said everything was on schedule and it’s a min of 3 weeks of intense pain before it lessens. I swear it feels like I have another hemorrhoid. I had a hand held shower installed which I found a great helpa little cold water after a warm bath feels great. I also froze the fingers of a latex glove to use as an ice pack.
Hi Willow, How are you doing now? I am 13 days post op and still in pain mainly right after a BM so like you I do a sitz bath immediately after. Does anyone have this same thing? Hi Sandy , I’m 16 days post op and slowly getting better. It has been the most horrendous experience I have ever had! I have had 3 children and I’d rather have another than go through this again! It is still sore when I have a BM and it aches down there for hours after .
I still find it hard to walk . I also seem to go to the toilet more than I ever did before , maybe that’s a good thing so I’m not getting constipated . When I roll over or stand up I feel a pull in my bottom and feels like I’m about to drop something out . I also have a huge tag down there which hurts when I walk . Baths have been my saviour and drugs . I’m so over feeling like this . I wish I was told how much it was going to hurt and the recovery because I would never of got it done .
I hope you are recovering well. NOTHING like it was the first week. Let’s see how things are by 4 weeks. I am at 16 days as well. Is this something I’d wish to repeat, nope. I had mine 3 weeks ago.
I am so glad I did. I had it on a Thursday and was at work Monday. The sitz baths were life savers. Day 1 and 2 were hard but day 3 was the worst. It wasn’t the pain, it was attempting a bowel movement. I took myself off pain meds after day 2 because they constipate. I stood on the softeners and the first bowl movement was horrible. I finally used the sitz bath to do it.
Gross but it helped make it so much easier. I am so glad you have had a fast recovery. Did you have leakage before ? I am interested if anyone had mucus poopy leakage before and if it had stopped after surgery. I will read till June and then report on mine. I am 5 days post opp. And I can honestly say I wish I never had this done. They told me it was painful but not how long and what to expect pain wise.
I have 5 children and I’d sooner give birth again than have constant pain like this. I’m living in warm baths as I feel my inners are falling out or a bowling ball stuck up there somewhere! I’m taking laxitives , trammadol , paracetamol and using cream to the area. Ali you are definitely in the pain zone. Pain was almost unbearable for the first 7 – 10 days then it went down to severe after that. My recovery was long and difficult, but in the end I’m glad I did it. Warm baths as often as you can. I am 12 days post opp, and i honestly wish i would of NEVER gotten this done! I have 2 kids and that was a piece of cake compared to this!
I basically slept in my tub the first few nights. My biggest problem is being constipated even though I take stool softeners. I’m 15 days post op and agree that had I onown this full process I’d probably have put up with the hemmorhoid. 4 so not sure that would have been better. I dread my bowel movements and the pain after is pretty awful. I had a ella rectum, thd and a mucopexy surgery 7 days ago and I wished for the first 5 days that I’d never had it done. I was told some slight discomfort for 2-4 weeks but the first 5 days after I was crying and close to passing out due to the amount of pain there was. I thought only going to the toilet every 3-4 days was bad with a basic diet but now I’m going 3 times a day on a near to nothing diet.
