contemplating fissure surgery
I'm a 41 year old woman and have have a fissure for for at couple of years now. I am contemplating surgery as it is so agonising however nervous about potential gas or incontinence. I have been told that Botox is fantastic for the spasms and rectogesic(0.4%GTN cream) is the only licensed product for a chronic anal fissure and even though it doesn't have the license to heal it does in some cases. i heard it's best to not take .2%GTN as this is unlicensed and acts the same as placebo and is an unpredectable formulation as it is made up by individuals. Some people respond well to Diltizem too so this is worth a shot aswell. Every night have a hot bath with salt in it(cup full) and this will totally relax your sphincter. Zed
