Two weeks on…

I think this will be one of the last posts on this blog relative to this surgery. I’m meant to see my physician again in about a month so I may post after that appointment. 

Since my last post my condition has improved dramatically. I can now go to the toilet without being in pain. I still feel stinging from time to time – I assume that’s the healing not entirely done. 

It took until just two days short of two weeks for things to normalize. I can now run well again but I’m weary of forcing myself too much in the gym. I’m still taking fibogel from time to time and I will probably continue that, especially if I slack and don’t eat enough fiber. 

The piles / hemorrhoids seems to have gone; the don’t prolapse any longer and I’m only left with the stinging feeing and a ‘flap’ from where the stinging originates. I guess I’ll find out when I see my physician how successfull the procedure was. 

Am I happy I got the procedure done? Yes. Did I underestimate the healing process? Massively. 

I hope my blow by blow posts have helped someone. I would have liked better insight before I embarked on this journey. 

Two weeks on…

Almost a week since surgery

Today is Tuesday morning and my surgery was on Wednesday morning last week – so, almost a week today. 

I feel better. I slept really well and managed to have bowel movement this morning. Less stinging but it’s still there. 

I’m hoping the surgery was worth it. I’m ready to put it all behind me!
