4 weeks post anterior/posterior repair.bowel was nicked during

This answer was rated:

4 weeks post anterior/posterior repair.bowel was nicked during surgery so no mesh used. Had some bladder problems but resolving. Taking metamucil to keep me regular. Some days I have pain in my rectum that is debilitating. Have been using paracetamol and voltaren but this is wearing me down. Any suggestions re pain relief, seeing surgeon next week when he returns from leave.
Thank you Noela

I can appreciate your frustration at this.

Pain following this complication can be very severe.

Paracetamol and Voltaren are not at all adequate for this pain.

You will need narcotic analgesics.

Tramadol, Fentanyl, Hydrocodone are some of the opioid analgesics that you should discuss with your doctor.

You can ask about using the Fentanyl patch which provides a constant pain relief.

Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.

I trust my answer has helped you gain more knowledge and confidence about your problem and in knowing what to discuss with your doctor.
