A message for the Disheartened

Postby Wotan » 18 Apr 2018, 03:14

Hello everyone,

Firstly, many thanks to all on here who have helped me with my questions and problems, I hope this experience will now help you. I have suffered from fissure on and off for quite a few years. Its always responded to self-medication. Fybojel and Anusol Suppositories. Just short of 3 months ago I got another fissure ( 6 O'clock position ) after having a bout of constipation, but it did not respond to my regime, in fact it went nuclear. After 3 weeks of pain it was off to the Dr, who to her credit I now realise prescribed Rectogesic. She also said I had a hemorrhoid.

First treatment with the ointment I was in tears the pain was so bad. I had a major headache the first few times I used it, but persevered and they went entirely. The pain was bad, but I did manage to insert the jell PR twice per day. I never missed a treatment and I was taking Fybojel twice daily. My bowels are regular, and I went every morning. I was not constipated, but still getting stinging pain. After 4 weeks the tenderness had gone, and I had to go to Malta, so continued the treatment over there for just over a week and noticed the pain easing, It was 5 weeks into the treatment which was an 8-week course. Got back to the UK and bingo, the pain came back with a vengeance. I needed to see the Dr regarding another issue and mentioned the pain, but was just told to persevere and see how things went. At 6 weeks the pain had started to ease, but I was sure the ointment was not working and I would need further treatment.

I kept up the regime and at the end of 6 weeks, the discomfort was much less. By week 7 no pain and by the end of week 8 no pain at all ( just as well, as the treatment ended ). I have kept up the Fybojel and go regular, but I have been pain-free now for over 3 weeks. I am aware healing takes time, but I am living in hope !!!. The moral then is, if you are on Rectogesic it is not a magic ointment. Keep going as I thought it would not work. it took weeks, but it did the job....Persevere. I hope it stays that way, and I hope this may help people who are on the same regime...Best of luck to all
