Hi all! I had my surgery done a few days ago!! With pain killer and doing everything right! It's not that bad!! Here are some tips, hopefully will help you in advance before surgery... Enema to clean up your system before going in for surgery, that way you don't have to use the toilet at least a few days so the wound can heal! Watch what you eat after surgery! Super high fiber, fruits, stool softener, and drink plenty of water! And sitz baths 3-4 times a day! Some of the story's here is frightening peoples to back off from the surgery!! I just think they need to do there homework first! If you are suffering for a long time like I did! Surgery is the way to fix it!! Good luck to all:)
