Hi, I had an LIS and fissurectomy almost 2 weeks ago, and though my incision seems fine (and I checked out okay last Tues., for a post-op visit with my crs), I'm having burning in my bottom. I don't know if it's just part of the healing process, or, if something else is going on.

I just want to feel better. I know people who've breezed through this surgery - but it's been a challenge for me. I trust that I've had a good doctor . . . so, I don't know why I'm burning down below, unless that's just part of it.

Plus, I've thought I might have a UTI (don't know now), and I was taking macrodantin for it - maybe too much - and now I have muscle/body aching, in addition to the burning bottom.

Not fun. --- Hope your recovery is going smoother than mine.
