OMG it's been a week and I still have a huge hole where he dug it out next to my butthole. It's so painful and gross looking you would believe it! It will heal and new skin will reappear eventually. But I can tell you the day after surgery I already felt so much better because all that stool, puss and blood was sitting in a three in long tract and was backed up and it was making me feel tired and ill all day!
The heaping tablespoon on metamucil day and night seems to help but I'm pooping like three times a day, good bulky ones but still it seems to be a lot.
I don't have constipation but when I do have to go sometimes my body pushes as if I have to and it's creating this slice in my rectum. What can I ask for so I don't have gut spasms and something that will work quickly when I get up to go in the mornings?
UC since '05 and DX with chronic Lyme's in '10. Lialda, lexapro, trying Uceris .5asa never put me in remission. I eat well, exercise , pray and use my faith, but sometimes you still need medication. I tried without it, bad idea.i'm not out trying to save the world, just trying to make a difference, with a smile and a positive attitude :) a fighter in life!
