Update. BCIR surgery being falsely accused of being the cause of rectal pain. It appears the fact that several people started having rectal pain after BCIR surgery was completely coincidental. It seems that in my case it is from a back issue at L5. Doctors have been focused on the rectal area trying everything from injections to removing my tail bone. Last week I went to a new doctor and he said I need to be on medication for inflamed nerves not pain medicine. It helped the first day. Imaging shows a very bad back issue that I thought had been cleared up years ago. Turns out the surgery on my back never healed and most likely is causing pain. I’m getting injections on the fifteenth and if my back is causing the pain then, no more pain. I’ll let you know. Still here and haven’t given up. So many doctors have tried to help but they have all been going down the same rabbit hole, looking for a correlation to the BCIR surgery and rectal pain. It appears as of last week the culprit is a bad back issue totally unrelated to any intestinal surgery.
