Hi there!

I'm new here but have been reading everything I can on fissures. I've been having problems for probably 4 years, mostly manageable until about 4 months ago. Finally went to my doctor and she referred me to a specialist who said I have 3 fissures. After trying everything he suggested I talk to another doctor about getting the surgery. I cry daily, very depressed, need my life back so I am doing it. Any advice for the day before surgery? I'm eating light today, soup for dinner and maybe some popsicles tonight. I was told to do 2 enema's tomorrow morning which I'm dreading. Funny thing though, I've been having a lot less spasms this week but I usually have a few good days and then back to horrible pain so need this over. Anyhow, any advice for day before surgery would be great. THANKS everyone!!
