Difficulty in bowel movement, painful, blood. Got cyst removed from rectum wall. What could be this?

I had a cyst removed from my rectum wall just over a week ago, they went up my back passage. Since then I have has extreme difficulties having a bowel movement. They are very painful and when stuff does come out its small round lumps. I'm taking a stool softener and its helping a little but I feel like I'm not emptying my bowels like I should be. It's really getting to me know and I'm so scared as I have blood every time.

Thank you for the query.

You need to be more patient and let the wound to get healed. It is a part of the process as with cyst removal, there were left some wound for sure. And this wound needs some time to get healed (it can take few weeks). The healing is quite hard as the part of your intestine where the wound is, is still in usage. Moreover bacteria are present in this area.
I suggest you to increase fiber rich products, mineral water intake and continue using stool softener for few more days. You may also add a probiotic for better bowels movement function. Increased physical activity (like jogging or swimming) also do stimulate bowel movements.

If you condition wont get better in a week or so, you should visit your doctor for some tests.

Hope this will help.
