Fantastic news msimon!!
It really helped my state of mind to know that I wasn't tearing any more. Even though the pain is there, I knew it wasn't from this never ending cycle of heal, tear etc. It has taken me months, but I am gradually relaxing a bit more around food etc and have managed to put some weight back on. I really hope this news does the same for you.

Huge hugs

What great news!! So happy for you!! I know it has helped me greatly to know that there is no wound and any pain is nerve/skin tag stuff. As my better half says, this may be my new normal and I don't think things will ever be the same down there! But i'll take this over the horrible fissure pain hell any day.
Really glad to hear this good news :)

Msimon....your story has made my day....i am so happy for you that you are not tearing and have healed. It is great to hear that over time, no matter how dark it gets...there is light at the end of the tunnel (excuse the pun and subtle bum reference). Your wonderful news is a delight for so many reasons -- it provides all of us hope that if you have healed then we can as well...but mostly it is wonderful because you have been there for so many of us with great questions and advice and it is a wonderful thing when karma works in the world.
