Hello I am coming to the forum a little late but I have plenty of useful experience as I have been living with a rectocele for 12 years and have probably had a chronic fissure on and off also for years. Everything came to a head earlier this year when my fissure and constipation issues became so painful I was unable to get out of the house.
I have been treated a very experienced colorectal surgeon in Bristol who treats anal fissure with a V-Y advancment flap technique and botox. I had the surgery and it was a challenging recovery process as the sutures burst open on one side. It took about 6 weeks to heal. I have now been back for more surgery and had a laparascopic ventral retropexy to fix the rectocele( bowel prolapse) and a tidy up of where the stitches broke down and removal of 2 sentinal piles. It has been a challenging 2 weeks but now feeling on the mend.
