Brief Answer:
drug indiced loose stools

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

It is common to have pain during defecation after hemorrhoid surgery. Cremaffin is usually given so that the stools are passed easily and without much straining.

Here is what I suggest to you

1. Reduce the dose of cremaffin. Only take it once you start feeling the stools are hard and difficult to pass
2. Continue to take Tab L-Cin C
3. Drink plenty of water. About 8 glasses per day
4. Eat two bananas to free passage of stools. Adding fibre to your diet in the form of green leafy vegetables and fruits will help as well

Do not worry about the stitches, your loose stools will not dislodge it or cause delayed healing

I hope I was of help

If you have any further queries please get back to me

I wish you good health and a speedy recovery
