    Botox for Anal Tear

    It would be helpful to hear results and experiences of having botox treatment for the repair of an anal tear.

    I had botox for my anal fissure and it worked the first time but I have just had it done again and it hasn't worked as good. I need LIS now.

    Re: Botox for Anal Tear

    Most literature indicate high(er) failure rate of Botox injections for anal fissures, especially when considering recurrence rate. Botox is also temporary so if it works for you, you might have to get it done every 3 or 4 months. And that's expensive!

    Surgery (LIS) is the only treatment option with practically no recurrence of fissure.
