Hi Kirsty, so sorry to hear how you're suffering. It sounds really hard to deal with but please don't lose hope. Have you tried any other remedies for constipation besides movicol? You might need something that stimulates things like senna. Have your doctors given you any suggestions for that? I hope your back pain will get better too. I agree that the steroids can take time to kick in. So much pain gets old really fast and it's natural to feel hopeless but it could still get better. Do you have family who can come spend time with you on days you are in bed?
8/16-12/16: Fissure due to antibiotics
5/17: Botox to sphincter, fissure healed
9/19: Trigger point injections and pudendal nerve block
11/19: Botox to pelvic floor
8/20: Botox to pelvic floor in new location.
On and off in pelvic physical therapy
