Fissure and Fistula surgery yesteday


I just had surgery yesterday. They drained the abscess, use lazer for the hemorrhoids, fixed the fissure, and found the fistula and layed it open. It was a more involved surgery to say the least. My bum hurts. I was given pain meds and taking those every 3-4 hours, but I am struggling with urinating.

What can I expect from this recovery? When does the pain settle down? I still haven't had a BM but alot of gas. I am taking peri-colace, drinking alot of fluids, and even eating a bowel of oatmeal as well as apple juice. Still nothing. I am so regular that I go every morning.
