i had hemorrhoid surgery 4 months ago and am still having some bleeding with bowel movements. i take colace and miralax which the surgeon prescribed. the surgeon said that the surgeon who had done my previous hemorrhoid surgery many years ago took too much anal tissue and my anal canal is very narrow and needs more time to heal. he did do a rectal exam under anesthesia 3 weeks ago and said it looked ok and was healing and has given me until aug 23rd and if i still have some rectal bleeding will send me to a colo rectal specialists. have you ever heard of this type of situation where it might take longer to heal. the surgeon said the bleeding can be caused by scar tissue. he did do a colonoscopy before the surgery and all was ok. I need someone to talk to about this. i still take sitz baths. i have very little discomfort and seldom have pain and try to keep my bowel movements soft. i would appreciate some feedback or someone to talk to. sincerely marg messick
Hmmmm, I had my surgery 3 1/2 weeks ago, I also am still having bleeding.It is so discouraging.Good luck to you!
I am marg messick and wondered how you are doing? my bleeding has cut down but I still take alot of medicine to help me go. Its going on the 5th month and I see my doctor aug 23rd and if I still am having problems hes sending me to a colo rectal specialists. The surgeon said that the doctor who did the samre surgery many years ago took too much anal tissue and left the canal very narrow and its taking long to heal. we'll see,but its frustrating and discouraging. let me know how you are doing and what medicine do you take to help you. marg
Hi Marg,hope you are doing well. As for me,it has been 4 weeks and I still have small amount of bleeding woth each bm. I have a "raw" feeling also. Were you still having bleeding at 4 weeks? I am scared.
go to google,type in the word,pilex.pilex is the cure for hemmoroids without surgery.i had them so bad,the hanging out type and i thiught i had to have surgery.since taking pilex i havent had bleeding or pain in three years.donundefined
i ussually dont have hemorods too bad unless im working,then all hell breaks loose as a rule they dont bleed too much either but when i start working they bleed real bad ,i have to get this fixed ,i go lobster fishing and it requires a lot of lifting and the past year it has been very uncomfortable to the point where it got to be fixed so i can do my job,from what ive read in here this doesnt sound very pleasant espically after the operation please fill me in as to what to expect ,ANYONE
DDN, I will not lie to you---expect pain. Especially your first week. Your first bm will most likely be the most traumatic experience. I had blood all over my walls,ceiling,etc!!!! Just make sure to keep your stools soft,and pain medicine will become your new best friend. Take sitz baths frequently and have a" donut" at home waiting for you. ( a cushion to sit on)IT can be purchased at a home medical supply store. MY first week was so bad because I did not have adequate instructions from my physician who do not communicate well with me at all. It was after the first week that I found out about milk of magnesium (a large dose everynight) and had my pain pills changed to something mush stronger. After that,it got better everyday. YOU CAN DO IT!!!! We are here for you.
Hi, I'm jonz. For me it has been 3 weeks. Still bleeding a bit. But the thing that puzzles me is: some days i have a very strong feeling to go for a b/m. However nothing came out. It's very irritating as you always go to the toilet for nothing. Do anyone have similar problem?
I just had my surgery july 30th. I do have blood with BM but no pain. Actually there has been much stinging b/c of the diahrrea yesterday and today. I was never in pain after my surgery. is that normal??
Hey guys... I had hemms removed last summer.It was a nightmare! Alot of pain afterwards and bleeding for about 3 months! Not alot but it was still there and the raw feeling described. It takes alot of time for some people. Most of the time the doctors do not tell you that or how painful it really is! Check with your doctors but I'm sure it will just take time to heal!Good luck!
Ibp35,or marge...I need encouragement here! I had 2 hems. removed, a very "angry fissure" and LIS done 7 weeks ago. I am still having a small amount of bleeding with each bowel movement. I am scared,please tell me this is ok with the amount of work I had done. I sometimes wonder if I resumed my activity level too soon. Dr. said at 2 weeks it was ok to return to the gym to work out with weight machines and jogging.He said it would not affect my healing rate. I worry alot! I was so afraid my many years of rectal bleeding was something bad--"the "c" word. He sent tissue from that area to pathology to assure me it wasn't. I still need reassurance please. Didn't yall both say yall had bleeding for several months after? Thanks so much
I know it is very hard not to worry! I even took medication through out my whole ordeal because it was such a disaster! You can read my past posts...but anyway yes I did have bleeding for 3 months after! I changed doctors because the first one, after he made the mess didn't know what was wrong?? Anyway I was bleeding and had this raw feeling for months, she said you are just healing from the surgery and this is a rough surgery and it takes time. She also said some doctors don't tell people the truth about how long the healing really takes! I also had a small fissure during this time. But all in all it took me about 4 months to completely heal. Now I am fine but one tip that I still use is take Metamucil or some find of fiber keep your stools soft this will help and for now maybe use a glob of vaseline before bowel movements this will help too! Be patient healing will come. Just keep in touch with your doctor and don't be afraid to call and ask him what's up?????Good Luck. If you have anymore questions, just ask!
