Can a person get a 3rd Lis?

Postby hopefulbutt » 05 Feb 2016, 11:10

Anyone ever heard of a 3rd lis? I've had two so far. First by far was not cut enough. Second was much better but fissure came back about 6 weeks after. Been struggling with it on and off for a year until about 1 month ago when I had a terrible retear. On dilt again and all the old stuff but my crs'a nurse practitioner says I'm so tight again. She said maybe give botox a try again (which I've had before and just never was enough to help ). From MN if anyone has a good crs or any thoughts for me. Thanks.

Probably before you opt for 3rd LIS you should do resting pressure test to understand what is capacity left?

Hi hopeful,

How are you feeling now almost a year later? Did you ever end up doing a resting pressure test or going for a 3rd LIS? Has diltiazem helped you heal at all after this whole ordeal?
