Did you have skin tag removed/cut together with your LIS? Because if you do,probably still swollen.as what I have said,I'm 2 months post op and still have pea sized swollen looking skin/lump. My CRS don't know what it was but he said will give it a time..?....sigh..... Aside from being sensitive,do you have pain before and after BM?just keep doing the zits bath it will help to sooth and help for swelling to go down...

Thanks ann. I didn have a tag removed. My lump feels smaller in morning and swells throughout day. I am trying to be patient. It's hard not to freak out. I still am having pain before during and after a bm one fissure site only. I can see part of it finally starting to heal so that gives me some hope. I am healin much slower than I thought I would though. I wish she would not have been so conservative with he cut. I have 2 small. Stitches that haven't dissolved yet but otherwise the lis site itself feels pretty good. Today is 3 weeks from my lis.

Ann thanks for asking. Lump is still gettin smaller and almost gone so that's good. Unfortunately my bum hates me and decided to rip a new fissure yesterday from a more firm bm. I am beside myself. ?€&@$! Now I am still trying to heal my old fissurr and lis site (which slowly are feeling better)I do feel more relaxed down there so how is this even possible? It doesn't look too deep though so I keep doing the diltiazam and trying to make my bms even more soft. I am exetermy frustrated and down. This has to heal at some point right? How are you doing? I hope you are still healing well.

I bought a little magnify mirror from target. It's at the opposite side of my other fissure. My poor bum. I don't really understand why I got it. I can only hope it heals quickly. I thought about goog back to Crs but what will they tell me that I don't know? Soft bms, lots of water, use my cream, baths. I wonder if I should be putting anything on it? Neosporin? Wheat grass cream?

Hopeful, hang on in there, I'm so sorry you are having these setbacks.... Maybe you can call the CRs secretary and tell them what's happened? Xxxx
