I developed one fissure about two months ago. I'm 37. I've been on nifedipine for almost five weeks and it has helped somewhat to reduce the burning pain during the morning hours. I'm seeing my CRS this week so I'll see if she thinks the fissure is healing at all.

I'm sure there is a lot of variability on this one! I have a pretty darn big AF (2 cm by 1 to 2 cm), at the site of old scar tissue. I really thought I might have developed another fissure because my pain seemed 360-degrees when I had a BM of any substance. But my PA (CRS clinic) just ruled that out, it's the main fissure causing symptoms (most likely). He didn't get a great look, I don't think. I have teen/young adult children, so I'll let you guess my age! My advice, if you don't feel comfortable with opinion #1, go get another opinion (or so). This is really a terrible problem to have and I think you should feel confident in whatever path you ultimately choose. In the meantime, work on getting your stools softer and easier to pass! Best of luck! :)

I have one fissure, at the 6 o'clock position. I developed this after surgery two years ago, when I was 39.

I developed 2 fissures at age 46. Unbearable for me, so I had LIS only 7 weeks into the ordeal.
