Please help with advice before my sugery

I have not been having any pain or bleeding with bowel movements in the last couple of days both with hard and soft stools. What happens if I agree to the LIS surgery and then when I get the exam under General anesthesia and doctor sees that I'm healed other than skin tags. It it a big deal to still go under GA? The office can never seem to get me in for a exam. Do they talk to patients before the surgery about it?

I'm in the UK and know you can ask for an anoscope exam before you have Botox under GA as my fissure behaved for about 5 days pre Botox and I was very scared of GA but it was still there and still very nasty...I hadn't eaten much as I was so scared hence not a lot of BMs....your fissure may just be playing nice for a while.
