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…

Much much better 

I feel so much better this evening. I just got off a three hour train ride and didn’t need the toilet at all. I had been really scared that I needed the toilet and it wasn’t available – no need for that concern. 

Let’s see how the night goes. It’s 1045pm and I’m heading to bed with a laxative and 400mg of ibuprofen. 

Much much better 

Day 4 – 2pm

Went for a run this morning; that went all fine. Got back and felt really ‘full’ tried bowel movement and very little apart from air. I have decided not to push/strain although it is so, so tempting to clear the uncomfortable feeling. Another bath, soothing and after having some brunch I finally had some meaningful bowel movement; nothing major but pleasantly relieving. Stings like hell but it is better than feeling you are going to explode.

Very little blood now – I hope that’s a good sign.

Getting really impatient. I need to be on top of everything on Tuesday and have a busy week ahead of me from then onwards. Grr – backside hurry up and get better please…
