Had Episiotomy and Haemorrhoids. Nursing the baby ,difficulty in passing stools and blood in it. Solution?

hi i had a baby almost 2 years where i had to have an episiotomy , yes from vagina to anus . after the stitches had healed i noticed a small flap of skin just on the top right side of my bum hole i have had a few haemmoroids after i had my little boy but now after 2 years it is still hurting to empty my bowels like hurting to the point it feels like it is tearing me right through my bum, i cant sit down for at least 8hours after passing my stools and i can not take anything as i am breastfeeding my youngest daughter (14 months). when i pass these stools there is more blood then there is a stool. i have a massive haemmoroid at the moment bout the size of a 20cent piece but nothing is getting rid of it plz help me. did they stitch me up wrong after i had my first baby is that why there is extra skin there? i have told my doctor the pain i am in but she can not do anything cause i am breastfeeding.. i am so over being in pain everyday it is really affecting me and stops me from doing daily activities with my children :(

Thanks for writing to us.
The extra skin tag that you can see is likely to be due to the swollen blood vessels that are seen in case of hemorrhoids. This is not related to wrong stitches during episiotomy. For temporary relief, you can apply preparation H before and after every bowel movement.
