I am scheduled for hemorrhoidectomy and sphincterotomy in two weeks. Surgeon told me it’s a bad/painful surgery and recovery. Has anyone had this surgery? How painful was it? How long was recovery? How long were you out of work? And advice would be appreciated

      Currently recovering from a lateral sphincterotomy that I got on Monday. Just had my first bm and whewwww that was painful. I’m still hopeful it’ll be better in the end though!

        @GhostyL Also to answer the original question, I was out of work the day of, but I’m able to work from home, so I was back online the next day. I just took it easy and worked from the couch/took a break when the pain meds made me woozy. But if I had to be in another job requiring me to be physically active, that would be pretty tough. I was told about 2 weeks for recovery.
