15 weeks since botox.

Still have some soreness and some shooting pain sometimes, but Im pretty sure its a hem, and not my fissure.
The pain I have now is not bad, maybe a 2/10 and comes and goes unrelated to BM. Still havving completly painfree BMs, and I feel very close to normal most of the time. Im pretty sure my fissure is either healed, or very close to healed now.

I hope all my butt-friend in here are doing good as well :-)
- 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.

17 weeks post botox

I pretty much have my life back, although I still think about everything I put in my mouth, and I still dont exercise with the same intensity as before. The little soreness I wrote about in my last post has gotten better, but I still get a bad day once in a while. Im pretty sure its a hem thats playing tricks on me. Botox must have messed up something in there..

I still prelube with vaseline, and squat when having BM, and I guess I will for the rest of my life.
Its really amazing how slow healing has been, and still is. Im getting a little better for each month, but its such a slooooow process I cant believe it. Anyway, compared to my active fissure days, this is so much better, and I may just be writing a success story some day soon :-)

Take care my dear friends!
