about two years ago i had to have surgery to remove anal condyloma (warts). it was a horrible experience but got rid of an itchy problem.
it took a really long time for me to heal and during that process, scar tissue developed inside of me that has made me very tight down there. it's almost as if there is an extra "ring of tissue" just inside my rectum. i had never participated in anal sex before the surgery and since, haven't been able to have it because of the scar tissue. it's very frustrating for my partner and i...especially me.
can excess scar tissue can be removed from that area? do you have any idea who i could contact to find out?
Yes, surgery or a quasi-surgical procedure (rectal dilatation) may be an effective approach. You should consult a proctologist (rectal disease specialist) or a surgeon with particular expertise in colon and rectal surgery; your local or state medical society can help find someone in your geographic area.
Your experience is one reason many health care providers prefer local treatment for anal warts (freezing, cautery, podophyllin, etc) over surgery. Surgical treatment is quickest but healing indeed can be prolonged and painful and complications such as anal stricture (scarring) sometimes occur. Of course there are many situations in which surgery is the best approach, and it may have been entirely appropriate for you; these remarks are generalizations that are not meant to be critical of the care you received.
