Hello..I am not sure if anyone is still using the boards but I have had an anterior anal fissure for 3 months, was using diltiazem 2% ointment from the compound pharmacy and now the CRS felt it was time to use Botox to help with the spasms. I was feeling better but know the fissure was still present. Has anyone used Diltiazem ointment while they were waiting for the Botox to work? I tried to stop using it but the pain came back and used the ointment and it helped. These fissures are horrible and the key is trying to use products to keep from getting constipated, but have not found the happy medium yet.Anyone out there going through any of this? I feel so much anxiety over this its ridiculous..want to get back to my life.
I'm going through the same thing as you right now! I've had an anal fissure since July last year, tried Rectogesic, then Anoheal (diltiazem cream) none of which worked. I've now been told I've to get Botox and the Consultant said to continue using the diltiazem cream until my Botox procedure in a month or so! How are you getting on? When are you due to get Botox?
