This week has been good! On the way up =)

BM is becoming more and more "sensation"-less - which is good. Post-BM discomfort/tightness is just about completely gone.
I'm now almost certain the "ridge" the CRS felt last week during my 6-week checkup (which he declared as the fissure itself) is just extra tissue related to my hem, and the pain I was still feeling in the past few weeks is some sort of inflammation/swelling.

I still do my butt cheek test (by spreading the butt cheeks with my hands and see what I feel) - and I feel almost nothing no matter how hard I pull.

Also still do my finger test (when applying cream into the canal, I apply pressure to the anal canal walls to see where it hurts) - also feel basically nothing now.

I have no conclusive proof but really felt like topical antibiotics (Neosporin) have helped with the last few weeks of healing.

That's awesome! Very happy that you're in a healed state now. Just keep up the routine even if you're tired of it, the tissues need to build up resilience.

patience and healing: thank you!

9/15/2019 Sunday

Another pain free week. I saw a little blood of TP on Wed-Friday but no pain. Not sure if it is due to the fissure or the hems. Still supporting my butt cheek during a BM. I think I'm strong enough to handle more formed stool now so I started taking Metamucil (1 capsule a day for now).

Next week I have to travel and be in a different city all week for work. Hope the traveling doesn't mess me up.
