It's been a lot of 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2 and sometimes 1, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2. I hop in the shower after every couple of rounds to clean up areas that I can't get with toilet paper.
Sounds a like what my mama is going through. She had to stop Metamucil and take Immodium for Diarrea. I got her Aquaphor to help her pain on her rear. She said she is so sore down there from going so much. What do you use for cream or ointment? We bought her "Calmoseptine" as I heard that worked well, but she said that it didn't help her soreness. So then I bought her Aquaphor and that seems to help. She pretty much needs to stay at home due to the bathroom issues. She is only only 2 weeks post op, and I know she needs to at least have one more to heal. Are you taking that nerve medication? Anyhow, hope you are healing well, but sounds like you both are on the same road to recovery. I just miss going out with my mom. She still feels uncomfortable leaving and she has to wear pads for protection. My mom will never wear a diaper. :0(
