I also only bidet now, no paper wiping. No no. The GP prescribed an HC creme too actually. After about 4 days of use it has started to ease.
I concur, Chris. My surgery occurred back in 1998 and I used to wipe with toilet paper and have to use baby cream. Then I visited SE Asia and had to use water to clean my butt. What a revelation! I haven’t had to use cream since.
