I had one 9 months after my first born which thankfully went away after using rectogesic for a couple of weeks. I now have another one which every time I think is better and stop using the cream (rectogesic) or slow down on using it, i'll have a somewhat hardish bowel movement and I can feel a tear or something again.
Does anyone else have an experience with these?
It's really getting me down, i'm sick of it being an issue and sick of worrying what to eat, sick of using the cream ( I worry a lot and wonder if the cream is going to do more harm later on or something ), also sick of stressing that i'm going to be able to go to the toilet when I actually need to go, with two little ones to look after during the day on my own it's not easy to go when I really need to.
It's not painful just a feeling of tearing when I go to the toilet except this goes away when using the cream which I had done for about two weeks and doctor told me to stop using the cream and just keep my stools soft but then I felt like it was coming back so I started using the cream again sparingly for a few more days and all started feeling good again but then had a hardish bowel movement and could feel it and had a tiny amount of blood on toilet paper. Do I need to just keep using the cream for longer to make sure it's definately healed?
If any one has any advice or a similar story please share. I know it's not the greatest of things to talk about. I just want it to go away!
