Colorectal Diseases

Healing after a Sphincterotomy



I had the surgery about 6 days ago. I feel much better, but I have this constant feeling that I have to have a bowel movement. It isquite uncomfortable. I am eating a lot of fiber and taking stool softners. Is the common and how long will it last?
