Monika, I'm sorry you're having pain.
Is your wound
open or closed? Mine was
open so that it could heal slowly from the inside out. I had to pack it with saline soaked gauze twice a day to keep it from getting infected. Even though I did that, mine still got infected and I had to have the surgeon go in and clean it out while under anesthesia.
You might put a call into your surgeon's office to let them know that you're having pain, because you really shouldn't.
When it comes to sitz baths, I don't remember putting anything special in the water. You can do them several times a day for 15 minutes or so.
Keep us posted on how things go.
