Fissure one year

Postby Seejenhike » 20 Feb 2023, 17:26

Hi New here
My doctor is now referring me to a surgeon after one year having fissure on and off. My question is do you feel your fissure all day ? I don’t feel it when I go to the bathroom but after and then it stays with me all day that feeling. Is this normal for a fissure ?
Thanks

Yes that can happen with a chronic fissure. They can become less painful with time. But that doesn't mean they should be ignored and left untreated. What surgery is your doctor suggesting?
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

I haven’t had my consult with surgeon yet. I think Botox is to be suggested

It depended on the day. Some days were good some were very painful all day. My pain could be just as severe as any earlier time.
Fissure June 2014 - Oct 2020
Botox, skin tag removed - Feb 2015
Levator Ani Sep 2014 - Feb 2016 (left job, cured!)
LIS, skin tags removed - Oct 2020
Fissure 100% healed - Nov 2020
Still healed as of April 2024

Yes, when an anal fissure does not hurt during the bowel movement itself, but hurts after the bowel movement, that is usually due to spasms if the anal fissure is on the anus itself. Your anal sphincter is spasming after bowel movements, which causes pain because it is stretching and contracting the wound. The streching and contracting of the wound irritates the anus itself. I believe that the spasming also prevents adequate blood flow from reaching the sphincter. Blood flow is what helps heal the fissure.

I have had an anal fissure for almost 15 years, and I have the delayed pain due to spasms as well.
