Yes, I am feeling better this morning. Just a bit sore. I would think they could give me something too. Oh well, I was at least braced for this as I had it done in September and at that time I had a hematoma. For some reason or other, this surgeon does not like to sew the anus closed, he said it allows for post op drainage that would otherwise be building up inside the pelvis. Guess that makes sense. He served his residency at the Cleveland Clinic, and has been head of colorectal surgery at University of Pa. Hospital for some time.
' I was on prednisone for a loooong time before my operation, maybe that factors in to why it is taking me longer to heal.
