Re: fissure problem??? Anal Stonisis???
I had a fissure corrected on Dec. 27. I was in extreme pain before and although I was nervous I felt desperate. Once I got past the intial visit (Very embarassing), it was all down hill from there. I am so thankful that I did not wait 3 months trying topical cream. The surgery went very well. I was not sore the first day at all. The second day I took a pain pill but was nervous due to risk of contispation. Once I survived the first bowel movement (Which was not bad either) I did take a couple of more pain pills but only about 4 through the whole recovery. I even went out on the town 4 nights later. I experienced a little pain from over doing it but was back to work less than a week later. Find a good doctor and go for it! I was in such pain before, the sphincterotomy was nothing to me.
