Hope someone can help out here, I had an operation in April last year for BC and wore the "bag" until July when I had the reversal done.  After a few months of uncontrolable BMs they are finally settling down, but every week or so I have up to 5 motions within an hour.  Afterwards I have a pain in the Anus which I descibe as "razor blades") it is quite painful and yesterday I tried putting some Vaseline around there to try and ease the pain, there were several small hard black grains of something?  Which I feel if there were enough of them and being so hard like sand could they have caused the pain and what are they??
 
Any help is appreciated.  I am not on any current medication and feel absolutely wonderful apart from these painful outbursts.
 
Thanks
Annie

Nothing that I don't usually eat, it seems to happen after many BMs in one day.

Maybe you have a build up of toxins in your body.

The pain you are describing sounds like fissures, a small tear in the skin.  You probably want to get some ointment that has lidocaine in it to reduce the pain.  The grain-like substance has to be from something you ate.

Annie,
I'm sorry you're experiencing intermittent pain. sad Have you talked with your doctor about this yet? If not, I would set up an appointment to discuss it and find out what's going on.

Thank you so much Sue,

What you describe could well be it, don't know if I can buy lidocaine here in Aussie but will certainly try. Will make sure I don't eat any grains.

Annie,

If you go to the dr, please let us know what the outcome is.  Kinda sounds like something you ate to me - maybe a whole wheat grain or something.  And if you are having multiple bm's, that could cause pain.
