I had proctocolectomy surgery one year back. It has been five months to ileostomy closure surgery. My daily stool frequency is nine to 10 times daily. The stool is not hard one. I am having a lot of burning inside and outside of the anus. There is no pain but there is itching and burning on my anus area. I am very much panicked. Is it a sign of hemorrhoids or something else?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
It is normal to have increased frequency after a pouch. As the effluent is liquid and is only ileal content, it may cause itching around the anus. Hemorrhoids will be out after proctocolectomy. Things will get better with time.
There is also slightly higher chance of developing pouchitis, but it is too early for pouchitis. I feel you should not worry too much and give time for the pouch function to improve.
