I am having rectal surgery next week.  Will I need pads post Surgery?

I have a few suggestions for you.:

Take the pain medicine every three to four hours as needed for pain.

Apply ELA-MAX 5 percent cream to anus (inside and out) every two to four hours as needed.

After each bowel movement, gently cleanse the area with water or bathe/shower to keep the area clean. If you have been told to place a moist gauze pad in the wound, do so several times a day. Tuck the gauze into the wound so that it covers all the surfaces.

Take care.
