I don't think that too many members have had that procedure, but if you do a search and bring up some older posts, those from the past will be sent an email letting them know that their topic has been revived. Hopefully then, you'll get some answers from people who have the answers that you're seeking.

Hi, sorry I haven't been on this site for a while so I just saw your post. I had bilateral advancement flaps done 5 years ago. It's a slow recovery. It was very important for me to dilate after surgery to keep the scar tissue the surgery produces more stretchable. If you want you can look up my posts under suzyljank. Be sure to follow all your post op instruction and continue on whatever stool softener you use. I use miralax to this very day. The surgery should help but things will be a little different after it. This surgery helped me tremendously but I have to take care. I take my miralax once a day and dilate about 3 times a week now and do pretty good. I still occasionally get irritated where the skin flaps were taken from and sometimes I will get a terrible spasming but I also have PFD. I had LIS first but that didn't work for me and then I waited before I finally did the flaps, by that time I had no choice. 8 years of pain and spasms were awful. My fissure and previous surgeries caused anal stenosis so my fissure wouldn't heal. After the surgery I still have some stenosis but it's more functional now. If you have any specific question please feel free to ask I'd be glad to help. Suzy
