    Hello, I know it hurts I remember. I had a prescription for pain meds for about 3 weeks after and I didn't refill. It should lessen everyday, its just we have been burned inside. Do you use lotions or silveride. I had bag balm used on cow utters and that was soothing for my whole tx and thereafter, until eventually it quit hurting. Keep you bms soft, maybe duculox, if okay by your dr. I wish you continued healing. Lori

    It is different for each of us and I have found out that depending on how deep or topical your tumor was can effect the external irritation differently as well as the fairness of your skin. Hang in there and if you have to sit in a sitz bath to go to the bathroom and then clean afterwards....

    You are still in the worst of it
    It will get better. For me that week was the worst. I remember it well. It seemed like it would never pass. But from that point on the healing was remarkable. It takes a lot of patience to deal with the recovery. We are here for you.
    All the best,

    I remember those days and it does get better. Have you tried using a sitz bath?
    Hoping you feel better soon!
