I honestly don't know. My CRS now says he will give me more botox in a month if I want as it helped me before. He didn't think i was very tight. But a CRS I saw just 2 days before that said I was very tight. ? Who knows. I have another opinion in a month too. I cry a lot too Rachael. Even though I am 33 I just graduated college but am unable to even look for a job because I can't imagine working with the pain. I really hope the botox works for you. When is your appointment?

The appointment is on 4th April. The external hem is causing pain now too. I am scared about the whole thing, I am a wimp and I hate hospitals!
I am sure you will be able to get a great job when you are sorted, maybe push for the LIS.
I am a instructor/Assessor, not been working now for a few months, I feel awful not being able to go into work, but driving, moving is too painful.

I sure hope I can Rachel. The reason I went back to school in the first place was to get health insurance. Ha Ha. Now I need a job to pay all those CRS back. Please don't call yourself a wimp. You and I and everyone on here has probably dealt with more pain today than most people do in a year. Have you tried the Rutin for the hem? Has it been shrinking? Read the reviews on amazon for it.
My pain started over a year ago. Exactly on February 1st. My summer actually went well with using diltiazam and having tiny tiny poo. But Crs said to cut back my miralax some and I retore, then had a hem treated and now either retore again or ulcer. It's like a never ending nightmare.

We will get our lives back. It feels like a horrible horrible nightmare. I just think sometimes I don't want to wake up, it has got that bad. I am using the Dilt now, had some pain free days on Rectogesic, but as soon as I stopped I was in total pain again. My problem was major constipation. God wish I could turn back the clock, if I had realised this could happen I wouldn't have strained! Plus I had an hemmaroid banded back in Sept, which caused the one AF, I am convinced. Yes I have 2 of the little s****s

Rachel I know how you feel. I can't remember how many nights I prayed that I wouldn't wake up in the morning. I am much better mentally and spiritually but unfortunately my bum is worse. Yes! Lets keep believing for healing.

I used to think all the time about how I wish I could go back 2 yrs ago and prevent all this. But I know it only makes me sad of all the time that I have lost to the pain. Only looking forward now.
