Fissure is healed but still have burning pain when sitting

Postby Alyssa » 16 Oct 2014, 16:06

My fissure has been healed for a few months now but I still have hot burning pain when I sit for long periods of time... I was wondering if anyone else had anything like this, and what they have tried to relieve this?

I have been to physical therapy, done acupuncture, tried lidocane, nifedipine have had no relief... I feel better when I am standing.

I found a old post regarding this but never got any responses...

Hi Alyssa

Do you have levator ani syndrome? I read quite a lot about this causing a pain higher up in left butt cheek?

Bio feedback seems to be the treatment most recommended for it

I've already had Botox to the pelvic floor and the muscles are relaxed...

I'm healed, but I can't sit down like a normal person. I tilt my entire body on one side and 'sit on my leg(calf). Hard to explain, and it's been really damaging to my body. I tried sitting down on a chair yesterday, but I got scared that it would cause pain or a re-tear. My mental health has seen better days ;P

If you have alot of pain, remember that the scar tissue can be very sensitive! My CRS thinks it's the scar tissue that's causing the remaining 'problems'.

Befor botox; alot of pain. I actually thought i had a re-tear several times because of the burning and soreness. After botox; SO much better!

I have requested a pressure test from one of the many crs I've seen but she has not responded to my email. It's just so frustrating!
