I originally went into surgery to have my internal hemorrhoids banded. Also have a skin tag removed. The doctor told me I also had a rip that he had to sew up. I've had an anal fissure before one time and I will never forget it. I find it hard to believe I had a rip without knowing. Maybe it ripped during surgery. Anyways it's been 6 days and I am miserable. Walking is so painful let alone sitting down. I've been given pain meds which do nothing. Today I was wiping and there was a stitch that came out on the wipe. I've been doing baths 3 to 4 times a day having to leave work because the bath is the only thing that somewhat makes it feel slightly better. Even urination is painful in my anal area. How long is this going to go on?
