Done surgery to release anal scar tissue. Taken PTQ for fecal incontinence. Anus discomfort, bleeding. Worried

I had surgery 5 days ago to release anal scar tissue and PTQ injections for faecal incontinence.
I am on high fibre diet and am having approx 5 bowel motions per day. My anus feels very uncomfortable and irritated. Often there is a small amount of blood on faeces or toilet paper. For a couple of days after my proceedure I ate a lot of peanuts. I couldn't chew them properly as I did not have my partial denture with me.
I am worrying that they may have torn the mucosa, the stitches or the PTQ implants. Can you advise me please
Annie.

hi... you had fissure in ano and it is operated... it is common to have discomfort for sometime, follow the diet you are doing and take lots of fluids, vegetables, fruits.. peanuts will not tear the mucosa, so dont worry about it... see your surgeon once again to see the operated area.. all the very best..
