Is this normal after takedown?

So I am just shy of three weeks post-ileostomy reversal.  I have not seen anyone else complaining of these symptoms, so wondering if it is just me.  I was prepared for the frequent bathroom trips and butt burn/itch.  I was not prepared for how uncomfortable each BM would be.  I get chills every time-near the end of BM and feel like there is something large that still needs to pass, that I need to push out.  I do not strain because I am afraid for prolapse, but there is pressure remaining.  It goes away when I stand up, but this happens every single time.  Has anyone else experienced this and please tell me if this uncomfortable sensation disappears in time.  I try to get in all sorts of different positions to be sure I am "emptying". 

Thanks!

i  am 4 1/2 months post op i would get like a quick chill though my body felt like had to go felt like it was huge and then just get tiny droplet or two not exactly sure how long before it went away but things get better in time at time still uncomfortable when i go 3 so hope it gets better with time good luck jj

A few days after my takedown surgery I experience similar as yourself, felt like trying to pass a golf ball  At the time my surgeon claimed it was butt burn and because I had an ileostomy for 9 years my skin won't be accustomed to it.
  I sought relief by applying ilex  Protectant paste to the inside of the sphincter, which really worked.

Then it was suggested I had tiny tears (splits in the skin) of the anal cuff/sphincter, often referred to a fissures.
  During a BM bile acid passes over the fissures causing an excruciating pain and created the sensation to push and strain, yet there was nothing more to evacuate.

I still experience the fissure from time to time, which I keep under control by applying the ilex paste; I've even pin pointed the area within where it tends to occur.

Some weeks after, I discovered that during takedown surgery I was dilated, so maybe the initial golf ball sensation I experinced was due to tears created during the stretching process.

Thanks a lot for your message. This is exactly the case now for me. Could you please let me know when this got okay, that is, how many months after the takedown? Thank you again.

It only lasted a day or so whilst still in hospital and just after my takedown surgery.

Its not occured for ages now, in fact, quite a few years.

When It was occurring from time to time, I applied the ilex paste as described and by the time of my next BM all pain, irritation or discomfort had gone.
