I am a 28 year old male from the UK.Long story short after a delay due to COVID i finally had surgery to remove a large anal wart, but large it resembled a clam shell, and prior to this I was struggling to go to the toilet out my back passage, it was causing a lot of dripping blood and pain so bad I could barely stand, lay or sit. It was located in a very odd location. Just below the anal hole, in the crease of the buttons, so it grew outward and didn't stop, you could see it hanging out of buttons - I called it a "growth", although very much a wart.It was removed on March 24, some small ones under it burned and the area stitched. Very upset that in the last 3 weeks, I've had a reoccurrence, more widespread or there is more than when I went into surgery - the good news, no "MAJOR" pain anymore and i don't bleed when I go to the toilet. They also looked up by passage and didn't see any. Just upset they are back so soon, and one of them seems large already, it's on the opposite side of where the big one grew, my concern is this one will explode and grow massive like the previous one, I just don't understand why I got such an extreme anal wart. Sadly aldara cream burns my skin and ulcers it, so I'm unable to use - my DR is considering acid treatment to next burn off the new warts.
1. I assume this reoccurrence is the same infection/strain? Can only assume, as I've not had any sex.
2. Am I right in reading 90% of people male/female will clear the warts within 2 yrs, what is your experience of this being the case?
3. I've had two shots of the HPV vaccine, 0, 1 month and 6 (due in the next couple weeks), I understand it won't help with the current infection, but it's worth having right?
Overall I'm concerned these warts will be with me for life, meaning I'll never get over this, I'm a bit upset by it all, came out of nowhere, I've never had more than 2 sexual partners and I'm blaming nobody because they have no signs, I just wish i could clear this.
