Re: fissure and rectocele surgery
Heres a tidbit for those AFTER surgery. Had hemorroid surgery at 3:00 pm. home at 6:30, Had an awful night, 9:00am I never had so much pain. 11:00am, Had to move a bowel, the anus went into spasm, keeping it closed, the stomach also went into spasm pushing out, Pleanty of stitches because of the little extra performed, 12:00pm I am back at hospital, I can hardly breath, my body is pushing in all different directions. It felt like my anus was blocked, I never had my stomach push soo hard, oh and the stitches were just awful, Now comes the poor ER doc (they wheeled me straight to a room) and were ready for some arterial bleeding, I can only moan in pain....then he rolled me over on my side, blood, stitches, contraction, and ...He did a full probe. It was the loudest scream I've ever heard, and it was me. I prayed to pass out. The surgery that was longer than usual wasn't even 12 hours old. I was given a shot of toradol- after. Im 43, and I laid there and bawled in pain. It is now post op, 2 weeks, and all is normal. couldn't tell I had it. Am I a wuss? I didn't think so til then. There are sometimes exceptions to surgery. I would still do it again if I had to, but not with the pain shot after!!! Wish all of you an easy recovery.
