When I gave birth 3 years ago, the OB cut a 4th degree episiotomy (from one hole to the other). Then I tore some more towards the inside, 3 layers of my anal muscles. Then she did a crappy job stitching me up (2 other OBs confirmed this) and now the area down there looks nasty. It took 6 months to heal, I have no perineum left, the whole area looks like the meat just welded together wherever it could, lots of wrinkled skin, I can barely see where the actual anus is because it is so covered by the rest of the tissue. I was told I need reconstructive surgery because my anal muscles were not stitched together tight enough and I am having problems holding in my number twos. When I have to - I have to go, or it will come out. There is no way I can go through the pain of healing again. Any similar experiences? Or what would you do? I feel like I need counseling if I ever have to go through this again. Maybe I'm just a pussy.Answer Question
