My ring of fire...

Postby Fissurefrustration » 29 Jun 2014, 11:58

ok so it's the first time I've checked myself in the mirror 'down there' for a few weeks and i can only see a small remnent of my fissure but now just on the spincter to the right I've got a dark purple raised spot, like a ball bearing. it's obviously clotted blood and so I guess I have a new hemorrhoid. i can palpate it and feel it under the skin, just feels like a ballbearing under the skin really!! on the other side there's a slight dark soft swelling and so I've come to the conclusion on both sides I've got small hemmis.

These aren't the same pain as my AF but are moreso an eyesore and a dull ache that's always there. going to see my CRS soon to discuss my options, I just hope he can do something for me I feel like this has been going on for most of my adult life!!

I'm using prep H but I'm worried it's going to make my AF worse...
taking on plenty of water, stool softners, and fiber.

any other tips?

ps I read online not to take warferin/aspirin/deltaparin/Fragmin - (Blood thinners) with hemis, can anyone shed any light why? I thought thinning the blood whould disperse the clots and make the hemis go away??

Suffering since June 2013 :(

Methods tried:
Sitz Baths
GTN cream - awful migraines!
Manuka Honey / Coconut oil / Aloe
Vitamin E suppositories
Tablets (Fiber, Cod liver oil with vit A+D, Multi vits)my + tag excision X 2
Dilatiazem - so far so good.

Fissure frustration,

Keep on doing sitz baths and add an ice pack to the area to relieve pain and irritation... Sometimes hemmy's never go away but may shrink...I had mine removed since they had been bothering me for almost a year and every time I had a bm they would swell up but mine were pregnancy induced.

Ff, mine have a tendency to become thrombosed (they get clots). This is super painful, even more so tan a fissure for me. My doctor (GP) is pretty old school and happy to drain them when it happens. Otherwise, the clots will disappear themselves in a few weeks.
