Please tell me I'm not the only one

I had a fourth degree tear from giving birth to my third son.  Basically ripped me all the way through.  I had to have surgery to repair the damage.  The surgery was 6 months ago now but I still have trouble controlling BMs.    Please tell me I'm not the only one and please tell me it gets better with time.   I hate having to always carry flushable wipes and an extra pair of underwear in my purse.

You aren't the only one! I had a 4th degree tear with my son & had to have a reconstruction 10 months later. Thankfully my reconstruction was successful & I have had no problems. I would go back to the surgeon and explain your problems. So sorry you are going through this! PM me if you want to talk. Hugs!!

They determined that my surgery was successful.  I guess that's why I don't understand why I keep having problems.  I thought maybe it just went away with time or something.

:( that is just horrifying. i really really hope that you get better. is there any sort of PT that can be done for it? i know that there is for incontinence, so i would assume...

There is PT that I did before the surgery.  I would have to wait for a new insurance plan year to start though (in January) because I think I had only 12 PT appts that were covered and they used them all pre-surgery.   I am totally kicking myself for insisting on a VBAC.  Should've just let them do a C-Section.   Grrrrr.
