- Fissure developed in Jan '13
- Started rectogesic in Feb '13 and diltiazem Apr '13.
- Got botox Jun '13
- Healed by Okt '13, although I still had some irritation for about a year.
- Now Feb '16, all is good. Still take magnesia, and squat precautionary.

just a quick update - I've had this for a few weeks now and I just can't get on with it. I feel it puts too much pressure down there and I cant gauge how big the stool is so it can do more damage. might get better in time but for now I think I will be having a break

What a pity. Taking a break sounds like a good idea. Maybe you are sitting too far back though?
Nifedipine/lidocaine, no help
Diltiazem, effective, but caused major rash
Nitroglycerine, effective.
Topical estrogen for final healing.
Gentle heat to bottom - pain relief, muscle relaxant
Kondremul mineral oil
Time - lots of time.
Status - Healed!

Here's a link to a quick visual of what one's anal passage looks like with and without this support method:

Very interesting I have a posterior fissure but it's caused by diarrhoea....wonder if the same theory would apply

Great question. I wonder how relevant the cause of the fissure is to determining whether the treatment would benefit you. If the fissure is low, near the opening, and a goal of your therapies (dietary and otherwise) is to prevent overstretching and re-tearing in that area, and the kind of BMs you're having run that risk, then it would seem this method of taking pressure off that area and re-directing the stool to the anterior region would be beneficial. But this line of reasoning may underestimate the role that etiology (cause) plays in determining effective prevention of further damage to the area.

Another question is whether the support method would be beneficial for someone with multiple fissures where the other fissures aren't posterior.
