I did finally get the dilators from SSP - although I really had to go through hoops. I've been at it for a month now, and so far so good. But if anyone is still reading this old post, I have some questions about length of time and frequency.

I've been dong it for about 10 minutes a day. Savaici (to whom I've extremely grateful for her super helpful posts that helped me get the ball rolling on this process) was doing it for 6 minutes every second day.

What's the principle here? What's optimum? Would it make sense to maybe do it twice a day?

Thanks

Hello new to this forum. Don't have a fissure but had fistula surgery from Crohn's which I believe caused my anal stenosis. 16 years ago I was about to have a colostomy and rectum removed due to great difficulty passing stool and long term peri-anal fistula/ abscess. The specific carbohydrate diet was miraculous for me. It all healed right up within 6 months. A cup of coffee was all I needed to pass narrowed rectal area. 2 years ago I cheated and ate potato chips and days in a row and I have been struggling ever since with my stricture. My old colorectal surgeon dialated me with his finger but doesn't do muc to help me He said the area is softer than most strictures and no sign of active disease. I would maybe like to try self dialation. But would like to hear more testimonies. I could have possibly more strictures above this one
