I think it is 2 or 3 months now without any pain

Postby VVV » 13 Jul 2012, 04:17

Hi guys,
First of all, thank you for such a great forum and sorry for my English (it's my 3rd language). I would like to share my story and some tips (for somebody it may looks weird) how to fight with an anal tissue.
I'v been having anal tissue for about 20 years :( . It is not so bad but usually I had a catastrophe 3 times a month. You all here know about it. As soon as you have constipation, it tears your sphincter, it leads to spasm and voila- you will have a pain for the whole next week. Image
I tried:
diet;
potato cone;
different gels and ointment;
warm bath;
enema
Sometimes it helps but its always returned. I was thinking about surgery...
The best result was to try to keep a diet (you need to chose it based on your own experience), if "shit happens" - warm bath + enema+some oil or ointment to help you for bowel movement (I did it at night so anal tissue could heal during your sleep)
But as I said it returns again and again....
I thought that the main problem is a spasm of sphincter. Should be the solution to relax the sphincter :roll: (apart from a nitroglycerine ointment).
2 or 3 months ago I bought a vibrator "We Vibe" for me and my wife (it is for couples). I read that many guys (straight :) ) have pleasure from anal stimulation so I decided to try it myself :oops: . It' s pretty good BUT (fanfare!) it relaxed my sphincter!! So now, I think it is 2 or 3 months without any PAIN! Yes, I continue keeping my diet (sultana+cereals for breakfast works for me well) and if any suspicion for constipation I use enema + oil but now it is very seldom
So, this is my story. Hope it helps.

Anything's worth a shot when dealing with sphincter spasms!!! Thanks for sharing that one. Would love to know if it helps anyone else!! :)

Congratulations on your healing! I've heard from others that anal massage and gentle dilation have helped them heal, but I don't think I've heard of using a vibrator before. Is that something you use on the outside, or something you insert? Was it painful when you had the fissure? Which vibrator by the company did you use? It's always great to hear new ideas and things that have been successful in healing fissures!
Wishing you continued fissure free health!

I insert it inside. Started from I think 1-2cm diameter (WeVibe) and now I can use 3-3.5cm dildo (without vibration). It should be not painful!!!!!, use as small as you can (may be the little finger), plus a lot of lube. If you feel pain it means you tear your fissure. After some time you will be able to put inside thicker things. As you can see from my 1st post I eat sultanas and cereals on breakfast but now I am not scared to eat any food (even which can lead to some sort of constipation) because my sphincter is stretchy and no spasm. A bowel movement used to be once a day, and now it is 2 or sometimes 3 times a day. Always I try to use a shower or dry and then wet paper if shower is not available.
Several years ago I read about a device some doctors use to heal the fissure. It was something you have to insert into anus and gradually increase it's diameter. So sphincter becomes more stretchy. I'm not sure but the conclusion was that this method is not good enough....
It looks like for me it works )))
I know how bad is life with anal fissure and if my experience can help somebody I will be very happy.

If you lube a small applicator, it's really not any wider/bigger than a small BM. Personally, I can't see where putting anything else in the rectum would be helpful.

Cheryl,
Actually, more and more CRS are starting to recommend home dilation with gradual increase in the diameter of the dilator, particularly for patients who arenot good candidates for surgery, such as myself. While I can still only manage 15 mm, which is too small to make much difference, the idea is to gradually and gently increase over time to release the tension in the sphincter. It actually is pretty standard to be prescribed dilators for fissures in some areas of Europe. I can say that even using a small dilator regularly has significantly reduced the spasming I experience, and have heard from at least 10 people just from message boards who have had success healing longstanding chronic fissures by self dilation at home. It takes a lot of patience and a lot of persverance, but it does appear to have some merit.
