I was given hydrocodone but only took it twice at bedtime. I was too afraid of the constipation. I can't take ibuprofen as it really kills my stomach. I sometimes take Celebrex for my back so I just took that. Basically I just toughed it out. My only antibiotic was topical.

You're going to do great! You've been through hell already and you are stronger than you think!!!!! :smilyhug:

Hi Rach, how long to go now? I know it's Sept, but not sure of the date.

Ahh thanks JHH and Rach, I'm doing really well but don't want to post in the Success Stories until I have done everything I normally would have done before I got my fissure. The CRS reckons 3 months for it to fully heal xx

Ahh that's great! I am a full time mummy but I only needed help for a week, I was in no pain but I was extra careful, still had sitz baths all the time and rested as much as I could to allow the wound to heal xxx

SS - word of caution, I'd give it more than three months. I re-tore after I started weaning from Miralax 3 months after LIS. I really wish I had waited 6 months. I thought I was fully healed as I hadn't felt pain since a week after surgery. Been a month now that things are hurting again.
Developed fissure from constipation due to breastfeeding 7 weeks after delivery (Jan 2014)
Nifedepine
Colace
Magnesium
Miralax - godsend
Nitro - some improvement
LIS (May 2014) - cured for 3 months then setback
Diltiazem
Feeling better for now

So sorry to hear that Jbl, I couldn't agree more and some great advice for Rachael. I am still 'very' careful, I am still on Laxido (although have dropped dosage) and I think about everything that goes in my mouth. I would say a year before totally healed xxx
