hi fairy, i'm so sorry that u're in so much pain now. Do use the rectogesic, as it can help to relax the anus and encourage blood flow which helps in healing the fissure. Can you call in to see the CRS earlier than ur appointment? If it's really unbearable, you can try take paracetamol as a painkiller. This is the safest, and most probably won't give constipation.
Use vaseline before BM, sitz bath and aloe vera (u can apply rectogesic concurrently) after that. Have you tried Miralax? Many ppl here on board has taken it to more success than lactulose. Lactulose doesn't really help me either, but prune juice does. Maybe you like to try that too.

Fairy,
Oh my, I feel for ya!! Been there! I am a week post LIS surgery and feeling really good. NO PAIN NO BURING NO THROBBING SPASMS!!!
However, before surgery....I found the creams didn't do too much. I took advil to take the edge off...I also sometimes broke open a Vitamin E and used the oil in area (I had read that "may" help). Took lots of soaks and iced the area...I put 1-2 cubes in baggy any put it between the cheeks. I've read on this forum some have filled baggies with alittle water and froze it and then applied. I did get some relief with the ice....even if it did just numb the area!!!
My CRS told me I should do the surgery as I had been on and off for years. The last spell was 7 weeks and I just couldn't heal it. If I knew then what I know now...I would have done the surgery a long time ago. I was in the hospital for 4 hrs.. (2hrs prior, 1/2 surgery, 1.5 hr recovery and checkout). Little discomfort afterwards and through the 1st night (not pain), and then I was just alittle sore. I had surgery on Thurs and returned to work on Mon. The spasms were worse than the surgery.
I found I take 2 stool softeners, drink 4oz Prune juice, and a glass of metamucil keeps everything soft and moving! No more shards of glass coming out! ugh!!! the horrid memories......
I was horrified of surgery...never had surgery before....but I was at my wits end. Thought I was going to lose it. Very edgy and in tears. The time came when I couldn't wait to get into the CRS and show my butt!! He did surgery 5 days later! I am a week out from surgery and have my life back!!!
Be sure to go to a Colon Rectal surgeon (CRS) and be honest as to how the Anal Fissure is impacting your life!
Until then....soak and try some ice.....I know it sounds weird....but at some point I just wanted relief!
Best of luck...and do keep up posted!!

Just wondered if you are still okay?! Just joined and need either botox or surgery, Spasms and painful schincter 24/7 and then burning and aching when rectiv wears off. dealing with this for 4 months now. Afraid of surgery I had 6 children, honestly if it gives any relief I am a fan. Dr wants to do botox first?
