  • Oh, I am so sorry! Sitz bath, tucks pads, ice pack, motrin, stool softeners. Use soft cloths and your epi bottle for cleaning after using the restroom. You can also buy that spray stuff. At four weeks, you should really be feeling better, you may want to call your doctor.

  • At four weeks i felt as good as new. I think you should call the doc. Maybe you ripped the stitches...
