I just got home from the hospital from my second takedown. Surgery went really well and also included what I am guessing was a pretty intense dilation for a stricture. My surgeon said he had to use a clamp just so he could get a finger in.
I am 6 days post op and have the most severe anal pain that I have ever had. I'm having to take more pain meds than after any of my surgeries and I'm just not sure what is going on. Do you think this is from the dilation? Is this normal? The pain is very sharp and constant. Going to the bathroom is pretty painful but not too much worse than just the pain that I fell all the time. It is constant. I am also having painful rectal spasms that just take my breath away which I remember also from last time. Thought things would be a little easier this time around..
Thanks for the help!
