post-hemorrhoidectomy concerns

One week ago i had my surgery. It doesn't feel like i'm pooping glass anymore, thanks to the two Colace twice a day and the Metamucil before bed. However, it still stings like mad to defecate. The sitz baths after bm's helps immensely. I have noticed, however, that i appear to have strings protruding from my anus...stitches coming untied, i presume, and i'm wondering if this is a normal occurance after one week. I still have the post anal seepage, slightly tinged pink, and an occasional bright red drop of blood after pooping, but i have no real active bleeding. Should i be concerned or is this normal? Thanks.

Re: post-hemorrhoidectomy concerns

I think what you are having is normal.
It took several years before my anus became round again after surgery!!
