Major problems after hemorrhoidectomy - any tips gratefully received!
After the operation in 2011 I was in a lot of pain. I then had a manic type of nervous breakdown and was in a psychiatric ward for a week. I had a constant pain in my backside. A recent pelvic MRI scan showed everything was clear. The pain has now gone but it's as though I have a bag of something hanging just behind my genital area. I can sit down for a couple of hours with a doughnut cushion - and can be lying down in some positions with this sensation but without pain (about 4 hours sleep a night). Walking is limited and not pleasant.
My pain specialist believes that the nerves in the anal area are damaged and will give me an impar ganglion block on Friday this week. I wonder if anyone has experienced something similar after an operation? Any tips/advice would be much appreciated!
