I have had this problem, assuming that I am interpreting your problem correctly, and it is very painful. I had my doctor call me in some lidocaine cream. It is very cheap (about $4) and works well. I would call the doctor after the office has closed and see if the answering service will page a doctor for you. Hopefully, the doctor will call you in some thing tonight to the pharmacy. Also, I would sit in the tub filled with hot water. I remember sitting in the tub for hours and while running to the toliet every few minutes. I have been up late in to night going from tub to toliet to tub to toliet for 3-4 hours. It is not any fun! Your bum burns and it is irritated and causes you to bleed. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I truly hope it gets better. Have you read some of the older posts? I remember Phyllis had some pain about a year ago and she posted something about it too. I cannot recall what she did off hand, but you can go back and read the older messages.
I hope this helps you,
Am I correct in assuming that you have not had s*x with your hubby since February? If so, is this because you are afraid of the discomfort? Are you sure there is going to be discomfort?
As far as my bum, it feels better. However, I have not eaten anything but jello since Sunday. I am getting pretty hungry. I called my GI specialist 5 times in 3 days crying and begging for him to see me. His first available appt is in December. I explained to the nurses that I cannot eat because any food is tearing my rectum and burning like acid. They told this to the specialist and he offered to work me into his schedule on Wednesday. I will keep you posted if he has any suggestions.
In the meanwhile, I am going to keep eating Jello and drinking prune juice. This is not fun, but it beats screaming on the toliet for 5-6 hours a night. Which is worse, hunger pains or a burning bum??? I can deal with being hungry better than fire in my rear.
I have to say that intercourse has been a bit uncomfortable for me since my surgery. I find that my internal muscles are extremely tight and I have to try to relax them better. You may want to google Keagles and other things you can do to help make your experience less painful. My hubby is very understanding and we always have to take things slow.
I have had these when I was pregnant years ago. and yes they hurt like heck.....sitting in the hottest water you can stand, or get in the shower and bend over and let it run on your butt hot as the devil.....mine were outside, or right at the anal muscle. I also think Anusol is THE best hemorrhoid medication.....I believe it is now called "tucks"......in those days, I just went to my gp and he would lance the buggars and it was instant relief. I can't believe he didn't see you.....he doesn't know how these hurt!!
I am feelin' for you....hot water and try to stay off your feet
