    Pain days after rectal prostate exam

    I had a rectal prostate exam on Thursday by a PA at a urologist office and he was rough and it hurt, I had it done once before years ago by someone else but this time they went deeper and pressed more on the sides and it hurt.

    Since then I have had pain mostly all the time in the anus area on the right side especially when pooping or sitting or even farting. I looked at the anus with a mirror and didn't see any obvious fissure. Can you get one internally in the rectum? I have not had any blood on toilet paper or in my poop. What about infection, can you get it from a exam like this? The PA touched a bunch of stuff with his gloves before he did the rectal exam. My diagnosis on Thursday was pelvic floor dysfunction but the pain I am in now is worse then the pelvic floor dysfunction and I really regret going to the doctor at all.

    How common is it to get pain like this after the exam and how long will it last?
