Did everyone get a fissurectomy with their lis?

Postby missy moo » 30 Jun 2018, 18:22

Just wondering if it's the same for everyone did you get a fissurectomy with your lis the surgeon may have said he cleaned up the fissure or removed the fissure, I ask because my surgeon didn't do a fissurectomy with my Botox an I wonder if he would try skip it again if I had lis so just checking if it's pretty standard. Thanks

Wow really so the fact that he didn't do fissurectomy with my Botox isn't abnormal? He said the scar/fissure is soft so didn't touch it

I didn’t have lis, I had the SAD procedure and he lightly cauterized my fissure to encourage it to heal.

Oh yes of course that has fallen out of favour now no one has offered it to me, I hope it has worked for you.

Not sure where you are located but there is a CRS in Long Island, NY and he no longer does LIS he will only do the SAD procedure. I am definitely better than I was but I still have struggles.
