Yesterday morning one of the area on my anal margin that had been stitched up, busted open. It's a large area and deep and when I have a bm, it gets in there. I called my surgeon's office and she said I could come in and see him. I figured he'd give it a good clean and maybe stitch it up again but he didn't even look at it. I was surprised that he didn't do that because he seemed thorough with everything before.
He said he couldn't restitch because it would most likely open again and just to rinse it with a shower head to clean it out. I'm sure he knows what he's talking about but my anxiety goes up when I have a deep hole like that right next to my anus.
When I went this morning I was scared it would hurt a lot (that area still hurts from surgery but thought this would make it worse) but I didn't feel anything from the wound. The other areas I still did but even they weren't that bad. Least painful bm since surgery. Yay! small victories...haha
My question is do you have any other tips for keeping it clean or making it heal faster. After I went this morning, I rinsed it well but when I looked in my small mirror, I could still see some there. Then I took a damp gauze pad and dabbed and that got out some more but I still see a tiny bit and can't get it out. I worry so much about infection.
