13 days ago I pushed out a baby, unfortunately I also pushed out half of my arsehole and now have awful piles. I also had a second degree tear. I'm doing my pelvic floors and can just about hold in a fart again but how long will it take to get rid of the piles and for the stitches to stop itching? I'm using anusol but nothing's happening. I'm not c
At 2 weeks, you should be feeling c 80% normal. By 6 weeks 95%. If not, talk to your GP.
You need to use the anusol 3 times a day .have you tried the suppositories as well? That shrinks them internally.
Itchiness is usually to do with the new skin being supersensitive. The lochia (discharge) contains a lot of enzymes which can be very irritating. Wash with plain water, pat dry with kitchen roll and slap on vaseline to protect anywhere sensitive.
Pelvic floor exercises speed the healing process by improving blood flow through the tissues. Do a short set every time you feed the baby.
Good luck, don't be shy to ask for help if it doesn't seem right!
