An unexpected success... fixed my ‘healed’ chronic pain

Postby Fissurefrustration » 03 Mar 2020, 05:31

Hey all,

My diary is in the diary section but my history goes back for years battling these stupid fissures. I was marked as healed by my crs a few years ago but the pain from the scar tissue just felt like a fissure and flared up every few months.

On a whim I’ve tried Palmers cocoa butter formula with added vitamin E. it’s thick and feels great, I add it twice a day and I’ve not had pain with a bowel motion for around a month.

I won’t count my chickens before they’ve hatched but I’m so relieved I’ve been pain free for a month.

Suffering since June 2013

Methods tried:
GTN cream - migraines!
Manuka Honey / Coconut oil / Aloe
tag excision X 2, botox x 3
Dilatiazem
dilatation 2 X daily + Retin-C Vitamin Scar Treatment Oil 2 X daily - best thing ever.
Now pain free 2/7/21

Kind of a weird idea at first glance, but hell. I think sometimes we are willing to try anything.

I've posted an update in my diary, but as a short summary - I tore open again only the scar tissue last week with a super hard BM that wouldn't move. no blood but my goodness the pain was awful. So I went back onto nifedipine twice a day, once the stinging stopped I've been dilating twice a day with cocoa butter and have been using a vitamin c/e scar repair cream I found online and this morning I had my first painless poop - it was mind blowing not to be in pain.
