    --Martha from KY-I would love to connect with anyone who has dealt with non healing wounds from surgery.

    Asked by MissMartha on Sunday, September 9, 2012 ----------------------------------------------------

    VASHE- Had anus/rectum removed, 5-39-12- went bad due to diabetic issues. Redo operation 6-26-12 - wound vac inserted, failed 4 days nursing home switched to VASHE wash (smells like bleach). Daily care from June to Sept 10 to0day, will see oncology doc today, it is 99 percent healed. I am lucky that my insurance paid fully for the home health nurse. Wonderful stuff and great quality of life....

    Dryness. I had anus and rectum cut out May 29th. I got an infection and June 26th had it cleaned out again.

      That looks like a good question for your doctor or specialist. The product the nurses here pull out in the hosptial for skin moisturizing is this http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/aloe-vesta-skin-conditioner---2-moisturize/ID=prod1689081-product I think ask your doctor.

      Good luck finding a solution.

      I suggest A&D Ointment. I didn't exactly have your issue, but after my resection, I got very sore from going so often. Also sore from colonoscopies so often. It really helped me and also comes in generic form. Good luck!

      jeanette58, I used Aquaphor (available OTC at any pharmacy) on the advice of my nurse. Worked well for me but I don't think my irritation was quite so bad. Give it a try!
      I, too, experience "phantom anus" sensations occasionally but I always remember that I no longer really need to get to the bathroom and just laugh about it. It may just take time to adjust to the sensations. Good luck!
