Thread: Ache

    Ache

    My husband told me for the past few days he's had this ache in his buttocks area. He said if he clinches it'll stop the ache. Says it happens about 2-3 times a day and then goes away after about 5 mins. He said iit just started. I did ask if straining to do #2 and he said no. Any one have any thoughts? Dr Appt tomorrow so will mention but wanted to see if could just be part of healing process from Ralp I'm a wife. Any little thing gets me a bit like, ok.. What's going on?

    I had an ache in the perineal area - which I assumed was the vicinity of the prostate bed - for about 6 weeks after surgery. It was dull-to-moderate ache - say up to a 3 on a scale from 1-10. Could it be that?

    He said it's not painful more just discomfort. He said a pulsating feeling. It said rectum part is fine, due doesn't feel anything when using restroom. But it'll start and then stop. Kind of scaring me. He said if clinches rectum, it'll stop @indy was is like a pulsating ache?

    I don't recall it pulsating but it definitely came and went throughout the day. I didn't need ibuprofen to reduce the pain.
