I posted over in the UC forum but was just wondering if anyone here has this problem....I am over a year post op and for the most part am doing extremely well, but, I have (what the surgeon referred to as) skin tags protruding from the anus. Last year he said they were nothing to be of concern. However, for about a month now, they have been annoying me. I tried putting the Calmoseptine on the area but that doesn't seem to help. My surgeon's assistant called me last week to ask if he could give my phone number to a patient who is anticipating the same surgery as I, so I could sort of give her moral support since I had a great outlook on my surgery. While on the phone I ran this problem by him. He said if it continued to be a nuisance I should come in.
My question is.....does this mean more surgery? I don't believe it has anything to do with my anus not being sewn closed, as these skin tags, which I thought were hemmies, are all on the outside.
