Anal fissure- again

Postby Bkguy2018 » 22 Mar 2018, 16:14

Hello everyone
So last year I had such pain when having a bowel movement. Went to the ER, the doctor thought it was a hemorrhoid. He referred me to a GI, and that guy didn’t know nothing. My PCP told me to go to a specialist. He took a look and said I had a anal fissure which became filled with pus. He recommend a fistulotomy (or whatever it’s called) and the pain would end that day. He would use local anesthesia for the procedure and it only took a few minutes. Well, because I was in such pain, I went with that procedure. It hurt like a MF! But after 15 minutes he was done and I got to go home.
Fast forward now and another developed and it’s right on the outside of the anus, it’s like a little bubble.
I’m hesitant to go back again for this procedure because even though he numbed the area, it still hurt!
Any other way I can get rid of it without seeing the doctor?

Thanks :cry:

That really sucks that you're going through the same thing, again. Was the specialist a colorectal surgeon? Unfortunately, I think you need to go back to the doctor. If it's an infection, I'm not sure what you can do at home to take care of it for good.
Helpful:
Nifedipine, Coconut oil/lavender essential oil, Lidocaine before BM, Aveeno Anti-itch Cream, Squatting, Finger support method, Bidet, Hot baths, Heating pad, 30g fiber/day, Wheatgrass juice

Yes he is a colorectal surgeon. I think what caused it was I wiped too hard with toilet paper one day.
He was good and honest, also said there’s a chance it might come back.

It's best to switch to using a bidet or wet wipes after having troubles in that area. I hope you can get this fixed in a more permanent way!
