Day 7
Very soft BM this morning. No pain, just some irritation.
Seems botox or the doctor has caused my tags/piles/whatever to be more outside. Dont know how to explain, but its like what was inside before is hanging outside now. Not sure if its the botox, or its from the doc messing around down there, but I feel more irritation from walking now.
No incontinence whatsoever, and no trouble holding gas.
- Fissure developed in Jan '13
- Started rectogesic in Feb '13 and diltiazem Apr '13.
- Got botox Jun '13
- Healed by Okt '13, although I still had some irritation for about a year.
- Now Feb '16, all is good. Still take magnesia, and squat precautionary.

Glad it's going well for you, JHH. I believe that it is fairly common with botox to irritate any hemmies that might be around, though I have never had botox...do have the hemmies though.

OK, I messed it up. Im back in burning spasms. Guess botox does not work wonders. I will need to keep my BMs very soft. What a bummer :(
