    Unhappy Hemorrhoid Recovery

    I had a hemorrhoidectomy 16 days ago and it has been rough to say the least. A lot of bleeding, an insane amount of burning and "glass" stools. But I have encountered something new that I don't know what to do about and can't find anything about anywhere so please help!
    I was unable to have a bowel movement yesterday, I take stool softeners everyday so this was not the norm for me. Today I have still been unable to so I took a laxative and when nothing happened I took milk of magnesia as well. This definitely made me have to go, but that was when I figured out the problem. I felt something out of the ordinary so I looked with a mirror and there was nothing there. But when I sat on the toilet and had the urge to go, I looked in the mirror again and saw a bunch of swelling that had protruded out of my anus and is blocking my stool. It only comes out when I go to have a bowel movement. I have taken ibuprofen but it does not seem to help. I have very strong urges to go and don't know what to do. If anyone has experienced this and found a solution, please help!!
