I would ask your CRS if they think you may be taking too much miralax.
Sometimes if the BM is soft and not urgent it doesn't stimulate the rectum and sphincter enough to fully complete the BM so you end up needing to go again a few hours later. That could be what you are experiencing, it's hard getting a BM the consistency that works for our bodies I need mine to be a Bristol 3 others need a Bristol 5.
I'm sure you will find what works best for you eventually

so I saw my CRS today, and he isn't sure why I am not healed yet. He told me it could just be that the fissure is still open. He ordered me to get a MRI. He said that could show if there is a fistula, although he doesn't think there is one.. its been three months. I still bleed from time to time and I throb. I think the fissure re opened after a hard BM.. and its just open again..
would u guys go for a second opinion or get the MRI? he also gave me a prescription for nifedipine, does that work?
