My painful story

Postby Vanja1987 » 11 Aug 2014, 08:53

Hällochen people,

my story goes back September 2013 when I had operation of my ovarie and got enema before the operation and seems like it triggered my already sensible intestines. I could do BM only with laxative, weeks after operation it got better, but still painful and with drops of blood on toilet paper. And then I did the dumbest thing of my whole life- I decided I ll take iron supplement (without talking with my GP or knowing if I lack iron) and since I started drinking that fluid, my BM felt like i was pooing razors. Went to the GP, she said- stop taking iron. I stopped, but pain didn't stop. All culminated with visiting proctologist in Februar this year, where he diagnosed me AF. He said increase fiber in your diet and drink plenty of water.
I did that, but actually I needed much more informations. I felt left alone, pretty embarrassed to talk with anyone about it, trying to eat a lot of vegetables, and struggling with everyday. Went to proctologist in May again, where he diagnosed me another AF on another spot and told me that the old one healed and that I will need to learn to live with it.

I am right now in pain, my lower back hurts, it all burns down there, I have that skin tag which is burning as well, and pretty sure I have right now AF on two spots. Cannot go to GP cause I moved from one country to another and for next 2 months I don't have health insurance.

I decided to try to heal it on my own. With proper diet, a lot of water and herbal teas and patience.
I am in phase where I am discovering what foods harm me through writing a diary.

I am so glad I found this forum!
I terribly need moral support! :)

Hugs from Denmark,
Vanja

Vanja,

Welcome to the forum and I'm sorry that you are dealing with these butt issues as well... this is not something that anyone should live with! Is there any low income clinics that you can go and visit a doctor so they can prescribe you Nifedipine, nitro?

Where are you located?
2/14 Fissure developed
3/14 Diagnosed w/ fissure given Nifedipine
4/14 Referred to Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy=Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
5/14 Fissure declared "healed"/chronic anal pain persists
9/5/14 Botox to pelvic floor
9/22 biofeedback

Hi, thanks :)
Im in Copenhagen, and as far as I know, there are such clinics, but honestly, I would prefer waiting and then going somewhere where I would get through treatment. Cause this quick-give her cream and tell her to eat fiber-visits to doctor didn't work for me.
I wanna learn how to do reductionist diet, if there exist beginner level diet for this condition, something I could follow apart from "listening to my body and butt", cause I have no more ideas what to eat. Thats what Im trying to find from reading this forum. :)

Btw, lets delete this topic, cause I ve seen its posted twice :/
