Rectal pain after childbirth :-(

Hi, gave birth around 10 days ago. Foreceps, episotomy, stitches etc.

Have had the most excruciating pain for past days which I put down to piles. Went to doc who said it wasn't piles. Midwife checked and inserted her finger (which doc didn't do) and she said there's a big lump in there on the right hand side. The pain is unbelievable, to the point of me crying lots and lots, limited movements, limping when walking etc.

I felt inside myself and the lump feels big and lumpy. It's preventing me from pooling :-( the pain is just too much.

I've to take strong painkillers over the weekend and if not gone by Monday, I've to go to a consultant on Tuesday.

Just wondering if anyone can shed any light on what might be wrong? The thought of any further procedure makes me feel literally sick with worry and fear. Thanks in advance and any painkilling tips also welcome.
