After hemorrhoidectomy


I have undergo hemorrhoidectomy last Dec 20, its been hard since then. Its have encountered pain after BM and needs to take pain relievers to relieve my pain. Although i have full control of my BM as my friends tells me that i will lose control of my BM after hemorrhoidectomy.

I'm quite scared about the fluid i usually find near the wound and its odor, i usually wipe it Tissue to avoid getting it on my underwears. Is this normal? i'm scared that i might be like that for the rest of my life :(

please help
