Hi everyone. I just thought I would come back to post an update on how I'm doing.

Tomorrow it will be one month since I had botox and skin tag removal. It's hard to see back there but the swelling certainly feels like it has reduced which is great!

I still have some pretty bad pain when I go to the toilet, but to be honest I'm willing to put up with it because it goes away pretty quickly, and touch wood, there has not been any itching the past few days (which always kind of bothered me more than the pain). So fingers crossed in another few weeks the pain will be gone too.

This would be amazing if it was all sorted! And really hope it doesn't come back!

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm at the one month mark, I had the Kenalog procedure for one fissure and had one skin tag removed. I still have pain with BM, and it lasts for several hours after. Does this happen to you? Do you have spasms? Hoping it will go away soon!

Hi julianalconte! Excuse my ignorance, but what is the Kenalog procedure?
I'm still having pain with my BMs, but the pain goes away more or less straight away afterwards. I'm not really sure if the op has worked...

I'm sorry to hear! The Kenalog is a procedure where they don't cut the muscle like LIS but they inject a steroid and cauterize the wound. I also had the skin tag removed.

Hi guys. Can I ask how you're doing now? And who your surgeons were? I'm UK based and looking on getting a couple of separate opinions from good surgeons for the removal of a couple of pesky tags I have had for years!!

Hi Lilyanna, I'm in the US and went to Dr. Daniel Fiengold in New York for the Kenalog Procedure. I'm at about 9 weeks post op and still having pain. It has been a slow recovery process but staying positive and hoping for more healing! He said at my 6 week visit that he expected that I would still be in pain since my fissure was pretty bad. I can keep you updated if you wish! The typical healing time frame is 3 months so hoping I will feel better by then. In terms of the skin tag that he removed, that pain has gone away. I would suggest doing it! Let me know if you have any more questions.
