Quote from lbp35:emf4048, It seems like alot of people who have had hem. surgery developed fissures after. The hem. surgery is one surgery I wish I would have never gotten. I still sometimes get a weird feeling there, not really pain it's hard to describe. I also have skin tags that I did'nt have before the surgery. It is been 4 months of hell for me. I was and am still afraid the fissure is still there or will come back and I will have to endure another horrible surgery. It has been a nightmare. I took stool softeners, increased my fiber, took vitiman c, fish oil and any other healing agent I could get my hands on, but I think prayer helped me the most. Alot of warm baths seemed to help too. I really did'nt need pain pills. My colorectal surgeon thinks the soreness I'm having is just from where my surgery was(4 1/2 months ago!!!!) Were your hemorrhoids real bad before surgery? Mine was not, but I had a surgeon tell me he'll could just cut it off and that would be it, BIG mistake.I hope I can help you, let me know if you have any more questions!Try to relax, that will help!
IBP35 - Like you my hems were not that bad and I too regret having the surgery. I developed two tears (fissures). Today is my four month anniversary. I have more pain and discomfort now than before my surgery. I've been seeing three different colo-rectal surgeons. One is doing nothing except telling me time will heal all. The second gave me diltiazem
which I've been using for a month now. The diltiazem
has help heal the one fissure that developed into a painful ulcer. He wants to do botox injections if it doesn't completely heal in another month. The third surgeon who told the truth that my original surgeon removed too much anoderm. He prescribed nifedipne which seemed to make matters worst so I switched back to using the diltiazem
. He too indicated the ulcer had healed over. I asked about botox injections and he said to stay away from them at all cost. He had one patient he was treating from another doctor who injected her commit suicide from the pain created from botox complications. I've been reading varying opinions about botox treatments. Most not highly favorable. I really am being cautious this time about rushing into more as$ surgery. The third surgeon thinks I might need an-o-plastic surgery. Most of my pain comes at midday on when my as$ seems to tighten up in and around the scar tissue areas. BTW, seems like Tammy's thread has died.
