Question Was supposed to get sphincterotmy, ended up with that AND hemrrhoidotomy!

(1 day post-op) I came in to have a sphincterotomy, but when I cam out of the surgery, thee doc had done that and a hemrrhoidectory x 4 internal roids. I thought I would have a 2 week recovery, but it has now turned into a 4 - 6 week recovery. I am in sooo much pain! I am terrified oof the first bm I will have, and I already fee the need starting to arise. They gave me roxicets, and I am taking milk of magnesia, sitz baths, and applying lidocaine like crazy, but I am still terrified.

Anyhow, I m also a little perturbed about the unanticipated surgery, especially since it has such pain associated with it and such a long recovery time. I have 3 weeks left of classes (finishing prereqs for nursing school), and I am not sure I will be able to get back in there in time to finish them with acceptable grades.

1. I am looking for bm tips to ease the experience.
2. I'd like to hear about your experience with either surgery.
3. I'd just love some support.
