They have a nice mix of herbs in them. Really helped me. Yes, I started taking them again when I started feeling discomfort. Just on the second day right now. Last time it took a week so lets see

Jay & Hafz...any of your set backs include blood?

Where do you get the suppositories?

Just google 'FissureHeal Suppository'
The website I ordered them from was listentoyourgut.com

My setbacks do not include blood. Just a little burning/discomfort for around 20 minutes. Today I didnt get that either. I think the month long meat-less diet will help.

And another flare up. I'm getting tired of these set backs. I am seriously starting to consider surgery now even though my pain is minimum! 4 months and counting which leads me to think am I even going to fully heal!? When I first had a fissure 3 years ago, I fully healed in a month until a flare up this year which does not seem to be going away. No blood but still :(

Hafzaal...trust me, i get your frustration. I too have had a series of minor set backs...the most recent this morning where i saw a little bit of blood...followed by minor discomfort throughout the day. I've got you beat on the time frame...I am now 13 months and counting.

I too have wondered if surgery makes any sense given i have been dealing with this for so long...however my pain is minimal. I am going to wait it out -- my current thought is that this area is generally very slow to heal. While our desire is to be done with it sooner than later...it can take a long time. Others have taken years to fully heal....so unless I get back to some serious pain or something changes my current position is to take it one day at a time and do all i can to help myself along...and hope for the best.

Hope you are having a good day today.

Is itching a sign of healing? My fissure had never caused an itch before but starting this week for two days I had a crazy sensation to itch but I resisted the urge. Now for the past two days I am feeling pretty much normal with no burning or discomfort!

Hafzaal -- itching may or may not be a sign of healing...I am no doc. so take my words with a grain of salt. I say "may" because if you have found yourself feeling better after a bout of itching...then for you it may be a good sign. I know this is not the type of answer you were looking for....in any case, if you feel better and seem to be healing that is fantastic and i would take that any day!!

I still take them, but not in the quantities as before. I'm taking these:

..I started taking 8-10 each day. Typically 2 or three at a time. I'm now taking 2/day.


Also, I was taking docusate calcium, 240mg twice a day (morning, evening):

...also, LOT's of water.....like really lots of water.

Are you supposed to be taking stool softeners for that long? Doesnt long term use cause dependance? My diet takes care of my stools but because I have been symptom free for four days, I'm thinking of taking stool softeners to make sure there is no set back!
