Did you have any tests done to confirm your diagnosis? The two therapists that I've seen just manually touched my muscles and they determined my tight muscles were causing my pain.

The theory is that some people hold tension in certain areas of their body and for those of us with pelvic floor dysfunction it is there. I think previous trauma is a common cause for it.


Just found this thread, and I think the above statement is absolutly right. After healing I have noticed I seem much tighter, and Im sure its caused by stress and/or anxiety. Maybe I also carried stress in this area before my fissure, and just did not notice...

I have found deep breaths, and meditation to be helpfull when Im having a BM and when I notice Im clenching my muscles down there. Guess we just need to relax and be more laidback.

Is a pelvic floor dysfunction curable? Do I have to continue doing relaxation exercises for the rest of my life? People usually poop without having to do none of these things... Why can't we be the same?

Hi,

It seems quite a few people have ended up with chronic rectal pain following hemorrhoidectomy surgery. That's how mine started and if I had any idea how painful and life changing the surgery would be, I would have never went through with it.

Who would have thought that something classified as basic surgery would result in chronic pain. Strong chronic pain as well might I add which required me to see a pain specialist.

I had a hemorrhoidectomy 5 years ago... It took me 3 months for the pain to completely subside; I got a fissure after delivering my daughter but it healed within 2-3 months and I have been in constant pain. My hemmys were very swollen and painful; I had no regrets for getting the surgery, now I just don't understand how a fissure can leave me with all this pain when my hemmy surgery did not.
