I suppose they may not be hemorrhoids; the GI who did my last colonoscopy said it was just massive irritation from the prep. But they've persisted for over a year now, and this evening, I was having quite a bit of difficulty passing stools. But I succeeded (hurray!), only to get this really weird numb feeling afterwards. Kind of like when the local anasthetic is just starting to wear off after a trip to the dentist -- there's pain, but it's still kind of numb. Not just on my rear, but everywhere in the local vicinity.
So I did some looking, and everything's pretty swollen down there. All the female parts as well. It still hurts in that numb kind of way, and just feels weird overall. I've also had a considerable amount of mucus and gas since then.
Has this happened to anyone else? What is this? Any thoughts?
