Im probably just going to take a stool softener for now and keep things relaxed down there to see if it closes on its own. If not ill try some zinc oxide ointment to see if thatll get things done which it probably will. Im trying to steer away from corticoids. Thanks for the tip though. Im sure this isnt anything serious.

Aghh! Really sorry to hear that IT, but hopefully as GG suggests, it is an internal hem rather than a new fissure (fissures's usually let you know when they're there!).

As it happens saw my CRS last week and am now booked in for an LIS on 14th April...

Here's hoping you're back on track soon...

So another week or more gone by, IT, how are you doing now?!

Was it an internal hem, as you suspected...?
