    Question Weak Sphincter Muscle After Hemmorhoidectomy?

    Hi all - this is an awesome board; so many people willing to help. Makes me feel less alone.

    I am seven weeks out of a scalpel surgery to remove hems (two thrombosed external and one grade four internal). I form keloid scars, so my recovery is a bit slower than I'd like. Most of the common experiences described here, I've had.

    Lately, the problem is that, well, my anal opening is now simply too small. It's like trying to get a quarter-diameter thing through a dime-sized hole, and there just isn't any "stretch" in scar tissue. In addition to this disturbing problem (but manageable I think, with fiber and collace) I have a problem I've not seen on the board to ask about:

    Has anyone else experienced difficulty pushing? Like, if you tighten your muscle just a small bit, things 'go' better - like you've maybe lost traction??

    I'm looking for any help - especially a term for this, as googling "loss of anal sphincter muscle traction" just doesn't provide any help.

    - Kevin
