Yeah ok. I'm having a mild flear up today. Here in nz I'm still waiting for my appointment from booking 6months ago. So if i decided on lid it would probably take another x amount of months. Still haven't seen the crs and also since i haven't been vaccinated I'll probably be turned away from the hospital as many people here have been

Hi Missy,

I have been reading your journey here. I am 33F and have been diagnosed with AF 5 weeks ago. My quality of life has really had a toll.
He has asked me to undergo Botox surgery next week. I’m very happy but also see that a few people have not had great results. But I was wondering if you know any others or yourself with Botox.
Thank you so much.
Xx

Hey sbsp sorry to see you here. I had botox twice i did notice it helped but it didn't cure me. I believe if i had of weaned off softeners it may have healed. Right now I've never been better the awnser has been mostly stopping the softeners some people mite just heal from that alone you know getting normal bms back but some people mite need to add in a little psyllium husk or try eating more fiber rich foods and also make sure your drinking water. Do you sit in a hot/warm bath after bms? That can really really help with pain after bms. Good luck with your botox the worst that can happen is it won't work.

I had Botox after having the fissure for 5-6 months but honestly didn't notice any improvement. I was also suffering from a worsening muscle spasm issue at the time so it made the overall situation much more complicated. Once I got past the spasm issue I asked the CRS what my options were as I was constantly straining to have a BM and that was a dealbreaker (even more than the pain!). He said I could do Botox but it would wear off and I'd likely be back to where I was so I went with the LIS and that was 18 months ago. Since your fissure is so new, Botox might be a good idea.
