Increase your fibre and liquid intake. Also take some laxative for keeping your stools loose.

Dear Lybarte User, Please flush the wound 3-4 times a day with normal saline. High fibre and high fluids with fruits is good to avoid constipation and thereby pain relief. The wound normally takes 4-6 weeks to heal that is what nature takes so have patience and keep the wound free from stools and sticky dirt that keeps coming.
