I had LIS five weeks ago and feel pretty good, I tried to heal my fissure as much as possible going into it. If you have had a fissurectomy or tag removal your recovery will take longer. A few things I did that helped a lot- I used a bidet, seriously I cannot imagine wiping after LIS or ever again, you can buy a bidet on Amazon for $40 and it hooks up to your toilet- spray your butt down and dab it dry. Sitz baths 3-4 times per day, Ice 3-4 times a day for 30 minutes. I ate normaly which is pretty healthy and have 30-35 g of fiber a day, I drank prune juice and took 2 colace a day, which went down to one after two weeks. I sucked up the pain (which was not that bad) and didn't take any pain killers. Nsaids can delay wound healing and opiates will make you constipated, do your best to take as little as possible of either, I think the key is to just have one BM a day- no more or less. Best of luck, you should start to feel okay after the one week mark.

I'm having bm 3 times a day just by eating 2 toast and 3 dates.
I can't even think about drinking prune juice or 35g fiber.
I'm taking Tylenol and ibuprofen

Do you have an IBD or IBS? seems like a lot of trips to the bathroom if that is all you are eating. What kind of stool are you experiencing when you go? Are you having really small hard stools? you might actually be constipating yourself by eating too little food. Eating that little food will not do any favors for your immune system and your body's ability to build new collagen. Protien is really important post surgery as well as things like vitamin K (found in veggies) and vitamin C. if you are having diarrhea eating a little (do not go overboard) insoluble fiber will help firm things up.
