I have had several internal hemorrhoids removed and now I have to wipe excessively to get clean. Sometimes an hour or two later, i wipe again but very little. No blood, no pain no urge to go.

In brief: Pasty gooey

Hard to clean stool is usually due to a lack of fluids usually about 40 ounces short for the day.
Stay away from caffeine and alcohol and increase your fluids. This should help in 3-4 days. You may also have had damage to your sphincter muscles from the surgery. This too needs to be evaluated.
