Post lis - options if it hasn’t worked ?

Postby Jase1 » 25 Dec 2018, 06:43

Hey everyone ( merry Xmas ) just as my title states, I’m post lis op from sept. I’ve tried to be patient with the healing process as I’ve read different healing times from weeks to months. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s worked. I’m still in pain with the fissure. My dr signed me off last month but did say come back after another 2 months if the pain is still there. Any advice on what they can do next ?

i'm wondering the same thing. it's been 10 wks since my LIS and i do feel better than i did before surgery. however i sometimes still get pain and a bit of blood even though the stool is practically perfect...i don't know if it just needs more time or the LIS has failed... i have my apt mid jan so i guess i'll find out then what my options are.

I'm 6 weeks post fissurectomy and still having bad days. I'll go 3 or 4 days with minimal discomfort then out of no where I will have a day sometimes two with pain. It's only a 3-4 on pain scale but still interfering with my work day. I'm sick of this as I'm sure you guys are too.

8 weeks after LIS. Fissure is OK, but the area of surgery on my left side bothers me after bowel movements. Dealing with a fungal infection in the whole area (anus and between buttocks). I hope we all get well soon. Much love and support to everyone.

Hey guys! I had hemorrhoid surgery in September 2018, and then LIS in November 2018. I do not seem to have elasticity in the anal area anymore and the area feels tight and narrow. Is anyone else experiencing something like this? The surgeon told me that it should improve with time, but I am wondering if this is normal. Please share your experience. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your experience, Hopeful87. I am currently dealing with an infection. I am hoping to improve soon.

Whatsherface, I am so sorry to read that. Have you seen your surgeon lately? I hope things get better for all of us soon.
