Re: My experience with Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy (LIS) for my Chronic Anal Fiss

Thanks for posting this! I'm scheduled to get the surgery around the end of this month and I'm very nervous about it. I've been having pain for about 7 months, and I can't believe how some people lived with it for 7 or 8 yrs. I was an active person before this, and now I have to schedule my life around a bowl movement. This weekend I've been laying in bed instead of going out and that is killing me! I think I've recently developed a hemmorroid which has seemed to make things a bit uncomfortable.

My biggest fear is the pain from the surgery afterwards, and thinking this can be something that will have to become a way of miserable life for me. So its nice to hear that there are happy endings to this story.
