Thanks guys.
Yes, I will stick around until both I, and my friends here have healed, and I will update my thread, just not as often as before.
I AM having a problem. I wake up 3-4 am every night hungry and have to go eat, thats why Im trying to adjust my diet :)
Right now, Im mostly on souble fiber from trial and error. I was trying to eat more fish, but looks like I cant. Maybe I will try protein shakes instead. Or maybe I will just continue my nighttime oatmeal until Im healed...

Hmmm sounds like you're having a difficult time, for me, my body gets into a routine quickly with food and if I eat certain things at certain times, my body will crave it. Maybe it's the same for you, the more you get up and eat at 3am, the more often your body will expect it. Do you eat at the same time of the day usually? Maybe adjusting your eating times or having your evening meal later in the evening will help?
Mind you sometimes if I have a large meal late then I wake up really hungry. I guess it's just trialling new things and adjusting. But if you're not having any issues then why change anything?

Hay Jhh, that's strange because fish is the most digestible food, at least twice a week I eat it, first the soluble,two part's to one part insoluble then follow with a protein, Veal and chicken (great for IBS issues and more digestible then red meat)
I know it's difficult , to change your eating pattern's, try this....
Make breakfast your largest meal.
Lunch your second then dinner is your smallest meal.
oatmeal at night , that's a great idea, until you can adjust your pattern, it will fill you up, add a few prunes, so you can go easier in the morning.
All the best..:)

Hey J,
I am sure you will get on top of the diet issues soon.. Normally fish is very digestible for me, what type of fish are you eating? Are you hungry because you aren't eating enough in small amounts throughout the day? I often wake up quite hungry in the morning, as I don't eat after 8pm because I don't digest well after that time. How about snacking on prunes or something similar to fill the gaps and ensure soft poop! Hope you are okay today. R xx

Been 11 weeks since botox.
I have my BMs under control again, and doing fine most of the time. Im pretty sure the botox have weared off. Not so much is hanging out these days, and I also feel tighter. Today I have even felt sore, especially when I stand. I will keep a close eye on how things develop, and if there is any sign its going downhill, I think I will ask for another round of botox asap.

12 weeks since botox now, and Im still doing pretty OK.
Some days ago, I started to have more irritation and a crazy itch. It was mostly just outside, and when I took a look, I saw a rash, and even some fresh wounds. I think its the ointments, so I stopped, and it seems to be improving.
Regarding my fissure, I think its still healing slowly. I have some irritation, and sometimes a little soreness. Its not really affecting my life much, but its a constant reminder that I cant relax on my diet, and still need to take it easy. Yesterday, my BM started with a little plug, but I had no issues at all afterwards, so Im confident Im going in the right direction, although its a long process. I hope all my dear friends in here are doing good too, and I wish you all happy healing :)

Great reading JHH!
Keep up the good work - It takes ages to feel completely normal again, so don't lose hope - You will get there!
Also, it makes a huge difference if you lay off the creams & ointments for a while, so if you can keep that up, that's only going to help too!!
