Thanks for your query.
You need change your diet to obtain more soft stools, increase fruits, vegetables and fluid intake. You may continue your sitz bath with topical medicines and ask your doctor for stool softeners, analgesics. If this conservative treatments fails, then you definitely need follow your surgeon advice.
Take care.
