i had my procedure done 3 days ago and I still have not had a BM. I have the feeling like I need to go but I'm really afraid to push. Just passing wind is painful.  The left side of my anus is swollen it almost feels like an external hemorrhoid. I took a picture and sent to surgeons office and he called back and said it was just swollen and when I had a BM it would move to the side so I could go.  I just don't know how long I should wait to have a BM.
