Sir, i was suffering from IBS symptoms before surgery. My weight is 78 kg and height is 160 cm. Also i had piles 2 tags inside digonally opposite which were prolapsing when defacation and need to manually put inside by finger. Also pain was there while defacation. No formed stool was there. Always sticky stool with mucus..i visited Healing hands clinic XXXXXXX .there Dr. Aswin porwal examined me and told that i have 3rd grade haemorrhoids with pockets inside and multiple skin tags outside and need surgery. Hence stapler surgery with mucopexy and skin tag removal was carried by his i am on 10 th day after surgery but pain with sticky discharge with gas is continous. Medications given were Refacus 400, nucoxia and one sedative tablet for 7 days. I had followed up after 1 week. The doctor examined the area physically and said no need to take medicine further. Told to apply Anometrogyl cream for 15 days and Oflon-o tablet for 3 days. Today i seen pieces of sutures after defacation at the end of anus. Still pain is there. I was taking nucoxia and voveron tablet for pain killer alternately.. is it ok with the doctors diagnosis or i have to take medicines. There is swelling on the anus. I can not sit yet properly. The gas with sticky discharge is going. Pl give expert opinion. I am taking the food normally..but stool is not formed while passing. Pl guide..

Brief Answer:
As detailed. Control of IBS, take additional medications as detailed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your detailed feedback.
IBS before surgery can cause more problems as it was already there. Stress and anxiety in general and along with surgery and anesthesia causes IBS to increase adding to the operative sequel. I hope you are getting my point of thought.
Hence you have to get a good control over IBS as a part of present treatment also. No stress and no anxiety, please relax and ask for medications for IBS if you were on it beforehand.
Noted the type of surgery done on you, which was indeed needed as per the information provided by by, that is grade 3 hemorrhoids and all.
Since the colon and rectum is loaded with bacteria there can be infection post-op and will be taken care of with Oflin O.
You may please continue with Voveran since you have swelling and pain.
Continue with Anometrogyl locally as advised.
Also take Pre and probiotics.
PPI Like Omeprazole.
Take rest, no haste as recovery has to be fine and complete.
Continue medications for IBS.

All these things done together will help you recover faster; please give feedback after 3 days of additional management as discussed above.

I hope this answer helps you.
