Hello, I m normally in either the Fibro or Cronic Pain area's. I do suffer from IBS. I strain a lot I almost never have loose bowels, I always have the other version, extreme constipation. I take fentanyl patch and other meds that tend to make constipation worse. So fast forward, to last week, I noticed what seemed to be a hemorrhoid, it was large, and very painful, so I went to the doctor. My doc looked at it and sent me over to the in-out procedure place to see about getting this taken off. The surgeon said he did not want to do it in the office and he would see me (this was this last past friday)on Monday for surgery. He gave me a cream and that was that.
I went in Monday afternoon, they decided to put me under via general based on how my doctor decided to operate. The next thing I know I wake up and I'm in pain, so they kept me over night. I was given diulend (sp) in the hospital. I left the next day with Oxy IR. I have been taking mineral oil and miralax. Its been very painful. I had my first BM and it hurt, but since then I started eating regular food and my bowels are heavy, so I ended up straining a little while ago, which was so very painful.
So, I am going to call the doctor, but I'm sure I really won't be able to reach them until Monday. I guess I will increase my water and minderal oil intake. I need to have things very soft.
