How long are you guys staying overseas? Maybe you could stock up on some Diltiazem to bring with you. Did your fissure problems start with pregnancy? Mine always start with breastfeeding and I never had any issues before that. Hopefully yours will be linked to being pregnant and will stay healed.

Our trip is scheduled for 6 months. I’ve been planning on just bringing a ton of diltiazem and hoping for the best, but recently considered the option of delaying my visit. Part of it is because of the fissure issue and a big part of it is wanting my son to be a little older and stronger before we bring him to Jakarta. (He’s only a month old right now and hasn’t had any vaccines yet.)

Like you, I got my first fissure while breastfeeding. This time I got a fissure in different places at 1 month, 3 months, and 7 months pregnant. I’d really love it if my fissure issues resolve after I finish breastfeeding, but I definitely still have some discomfort and occasional bleeding and tightness down there. And this pregnancy gave me a pretty bad case of hemorrhoids too that just won’t go away. My CRS said they’re there for good unless I get surgery :-( So sad! I have a sentinel tag from the most recent fissure too. My poor butt will never look the same! Ah the trophies of motherhood lol

If it's an option, I think I would stay behind with a newborn and all your fissure issues. Maybe even just 3 months?

As for the fissures, hopefully they will improve after breastfeeding, but it did sound like you had your constipation under control and still had issues so who knows. It's definitely one of the more frustrating issues that I've ever dealt with! I don't think I have hemorrhoids but I definitely have a sentinel tag which I'm sure isn't pretty lol. I'm just hoping everything stays intact for delivery in July!

Fingers crossed your fissure stays away! I haven't been able to heal mine for a year now.

Thank you! I wish you the best of luck in this pregnancy/delivery/breastfeeding too!i believe one day we’ll be fixed up, but I guess we have to soldier through it right now and manage things the best we can. I really wish someone would have warned me that fissures were a possible thing associated with pregnancy/breastfeeding ahead of time so that I could have taken measures to avoid it. But at least it’s not cancer, I always tell myself! Good luck! Keep us posted and I will too!
