3 months after fissurectomy and LIS

Postby gobbledeegoop » 10 Sep 2019, 12:38

at my 6 week check up, my CRS had a look and said both the incision and fissure had healed

however I'm still getting a slight sharp pain, sometimes, during a bm.

I have no pain/spasms after a bm, my only trouble is during a bm.

has anyone else had a similar experience and eventually became pain free? my CRS said it just needs more time

Sorry you're still suffering with this. 6 weeks is not that long of a time frame and you likely need more time to be pain free. I suggest asking the doctor if it's ok to try massaging the area to help it get used to BMs.

I am 2 months post lis, and I'm getting more dull pain after bms sometimes. Sometimes I'll get the same pain during the day, but it's minimal and only noticeable for a few minutes (nothing compared to pre-LIS).

I think it's just not a straight line to being entirely healed. Continue to take care of yourself and heal up.
