chronic posterior fissure

Postby naomi23 » 30 Apr 2021, 04:02

Hello all,

Firstly thank god for this helpful and friendly forum .. I really appreciate everyone sharing their experiences and the support offered.
I’m a 48 year old female in the UK and have suffered from hemorrhoids, chronic fissures and muscle spasms for approximately three years.

Have had a colonoscopy, hemorrhoids banded, 2x rounds of botox plus my chronic posterior fissure was stitched during my last procedure in March 2021.

7 weeks on and I can still feel a lump and swelling and have pain every day.
My regime is a good diet, Rectogesic, Laxedo, magnesium and take painkillers.
Finally after being very strong mentally, now feeling depressed/anxious after my three procedures and not having any success. Daily life dominated by my health and restricting my family's life too.
Think a sphincterotomy might be next on the list for me.


Want to be part of this community ... so I can share my experience and offer help and advice when I finally resolve my issues.

Naomi, I'm so sorry to hear about your continued troubles. This thing is a BITCH. You are a super strong person to make it through all this and I know you will defeat it! My only suggestion would be to ask your CRS if trying Diltiazem instead of Rectogesic is an option. I am a fellow sufferer and Diltiazem has REALLY REALLY helped me. Like to the point the pain is totally livable. I've just recently sought a second opinion because I had LIS and didn't heal (10 weeks ago), and he's suggesting I try a different med (don't have it yet, not sure of name) he thinks this new med might heal me whereas Diltiazem hasn't healed me but has made me painfree both before the failed LIS and after. I'll let you know how it goes.

Naomi23, I wrote a message a minute ago and it disappeared, so I'm sorry if this is a duplicate. How are you? I'm thinking of you and wishing you recovery.
