Hello and welcome to HCM

Pain killers and sitz bath help in controlling the pain and hasten the healing.
Normally 7-10 days are required for healing.
Pain despite pain killer may be due to infection of the wound.
Visit your surgeon for examination, and an antibiotic course if required.

Thanks and take care

I think you got Sentinel pile removed.Sentinel pile is not a true pile,it is seen in Fissure in ano.
So,Apart from Removal of Sentinel pile,Anal dilatation should also be done,preferable under Regional Anaesthesia.
Please take plenty of fluids,green leafy vegetables.Sitz bath has to be taken regularly,preferably with Betadine solution.Apply some topical cream for quick healing with your Doctors advice.
Relax.It will be relieved soon.
