Gtn can be used for a long period of time. I'm not sure about the other one
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.
Currently in pelvic physical therapy

I m having chronic anal fissures and controlling diet and using this is helping me. Though the doctors suggested lis by I can't spare time due to nature of job. I can only spare 10 days but I think I won't be able to recover this quick. I m in helpdesk and have to walk to users desks very frequently and sometimes I have to bend and sit in squatting position to have a look at equipment places in different places.

Currently using fibrous diet mostly vegetables, psyllium husk, and total avoidance from junk foods and using gtn once or twice and using duphalac (lactulose Abbott brand duphalac). I have no blood.

I hope that continuing this strategy for few months might help recover.. Do I want to continue it for few months. Until February next year when I will be able to have longer annual Hollidays from office and do lis.

You can go on using GTN for a long period of time, and the same goes for lactulose. But it would be best to have your use of these medications monitored on a regular basis by a CRS or general practitioner.

2021 Better, but AF is still a recurrent problem
