Hi. Looking for advice

Postby bukeyemama » 26 Jul 2018, 19:18

Developed anal fissure many years ago with a relapse 8 years ago. Since June of this year I am in my third relapse and had some skin tags removed which become inflammed. I have doubled up my stool softeners, eliminated dairy and red meat from my diet and also doubled up on fiber intake. Surgeon said my stools need to be like pudding in order to heal fissure. I have yet to find that balance and go from solid soft to diarrhea and always pain and bleeding. She prescribed a .5% Nefedipine with 3% Lidocaine compounded ointment, which I use 3 times daily. Off work for 2 weeks and tomorrow is one week post tag removal. When can I expect relief? I also sitz at least twice a day and mini sitz after BM. Taking turmeric with black pepper as well as a B complex vitamin. I have a gel cushion for sitting but since surgery, try to stay mobile on when lying down, on side
