5 months since my lis things are ok still not 100% healed but not in pain its just a little sore when my toilet is coming out as the fissure area is stretched! I have found when I have my period I do get a little sore but still taking each day as it comes my surgeon said it can take up to a year to heal x

Katie, i m glad you are doing great. I am 4 and a half months out of LIS and i am forgetting already that I had this issue.
Missy, this is life changing procedure. If you have to, save some money yo go to the city and find the best surgeon and stay there for two weeks in case of need to see them. The longer you wait, the more damage your muscles and your tissues will get and the harder the recovery. This is an important step to recover your life and stop suffering.

Thanks hopeful I know your right an I'll likely do that but I can't save as we're on one income with a mortgage so money is always super tight what I will do is look into borrowing the money from the bank even if we put it on the mortgage not sure if we can but will look into it it's about 10k nzd so it's very expensive but if I'm going to do it I want the best so I'll have to pay for it. I'd love to come back here an be like you an tell everyone to go for it get your life back I need to learn to trust this is just apart of that.

That's expensive. For this amount you can fly to California and have the surgery done by my doctor without any insurance.

I am sure though tjat you can find a proctologist in your capital that accepts insurance and has done these procedures many times. You would be surprised how many people suffer from this condition, they just don't talk about it because it may be emberasing. Ask the doc for surgeon several when you go to your appointment and then call and ask how many procedures they have done. Or just search online and start calling them to obtain experience information. My native country in EU is a small one but when I read forums it turned out that there are so many good surgeons in the bigger cities tjat do tons of these procedures. In fact they don't wait long before they suggest surgeries to the patients because the know better the suffering the small chance if chronic fissures healing just with ointments.

I just think you either go through the public health system an your only seen in the town you live in or you go private which costs heaps if I moved to the capital of NZ or just gave an address in a bigger town I would be seen locally which would be with a more experienced surgeon but paying for it just seems more promising an straight forward if I could sort the money out
