So I've suffered for two years with chronic fissures, and after months and months of unsuccessful treatments I went in for LIS. On Sept 2011, I had my procedure done and everything went ok. Of course, there was the swelling and the pain and the discomfort, but it went away within in a month. By month two I was fully healed and back to living life again.
Update to January 2012, my fissures are back and in full force. My doc shot me up with Botox (worse than getting Novocaine from the dentist). He even had another of his associate help him (which he mentioned my sphincter muscle was higher up than normal... what ever that meant
) And my fissures have gotten even worse. The only bad thing I've experience from the Botox injections is the constant awareness that i may pass gas unwanted and its hardly to hold it back. I've tried everything now (2x daily sitz baths, fiber intake, water uptake, regular runner). My doc says the only other option is to go in for LIS AGAIN.
does anyone out there have any advise. any other remedies, homeopathic relief or just plain help.
