FOLLOWING ANAL SURGERY
What should you do
Wound Care

Please remove all packing and dressings after shower spray of the anal area with warm water the morning following your surgery. The dressing may fall off or out prior to that time, which is fine.

Please perform sitz baths twice each day as well as after each bowel movement (10-15 minute soak in warm water), only if you have an open wound. You may do this more frequently for cleanliness or if they help relieve discomfort.
Do not sit on a "donut". For prolonged sitting, use a pillow or styrofoam pad.

Bowel Medications

Please take 1 tablespoon of Fybogel, Mucilin or other fiber supplement of your choice once each day. Dissolve this in a glass of water or juice. Drink additional 8-10 glasses of water during the course of each day.

You may use Lactus syrup 20cc per day to supplement the fibre if stool consistency is still hard.

If you go 72 hours without a bowel movement, please contact your doctor as you may need a gentle enema to relieve stool impaction.

Pain Medication

You will be given pain medications(usually Naproxen and Tramadol). Take the Naproxen as directed every 6 hours and the Tramadol can be taken in between for breakthrough pain.

Activity

Rest today. Do not do any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise for 5 days.

Urination

If you cannot urinate, sit in a warm bath or shower then try again.

Diet

Resume a regular diet.
