Good for you, keep doing what works. Did the doctor tell you to keep taking softeners?

Yes, the doctor and nurse did recommend continuing the stool softener. I go back in 10 days for a follow-up. I'll find out then what he recommends going forward.

I highly recommend Dr. Nadler at St. Clair Hospital in the Pittsburgh, PA area. He knows what he's doing when it comes to fissures.

I had a somewhat difficult BM yesterday. First difficult one since surgery. There was a little blood, very little, but I'm sure it aggravated my fissure, which obviously hasn't completely healed yet. It's only been two weeks since surgery so it is understandable that it hasn't.

My BMs are unpredictable and even when taking stool softener I will occasionally have a difficult one. It's hard to heal a fissure when your BMs aren't soft and consistent. There was very little after-bm pain and only 3/10 pain during.

Everybody experience hard stools occasionally, even if taking softeners or laxatives. It is what it is and you cannot predict that. This is what causes so many people to retear. I wish medicine will advance faster on this field...
