Thought I would try joining this group and give it a try. I'm a 40 year old female. My condensed background is I had a colonoscopy back in February after having some issues, saw a second doctor in April. Had botox done in May and for a second time almost a month ago. I'm considering have surgery as I'm still not fully healed. I did have some progress after the first botox which is why it was recommended to attempt it again. Been following instructions diligently, I take a fiber supplement and stool softer everyday, drinking lots of water, made changes to my diet. Along with this the lifestyle and diet changes I've made I've lost a significant amount of weight. I feel mentally and physically wore down at this point.

Fissures would wear anyone out! You are not alone in feeling this way, but there is hope for you to heal. Hopefully the second round of botox will help you heal fully. Try something like avocados to help keep your weight stable. They are a healthy high calorie food and will not cause constipation. It's important to have emotional support during this time so you can make the best decisions for yourself. Wishing you speedy healing.
