Reoccurance- how common

Postby Pokey » 14 Apr 2017, 11:34

I just wanted to see how common it is among folks here to have a reoccurance of a fissure after successful surgery. I had a LIS in 2003 and everything went well until this past year and I got another fissure. Seems like it hit me out of the blue. My CRS says things are pretty tight down there. I've been treating a small fissure conservatively the past 10 months. It comes and goes but I'm about ready to have my CRS do his next trick. Anyway is it common or uncommon for some folks to get these damn things again after doing well for a long period.

Sorry to hear you are dealing with this again! There are members on this forum who got fissures many years after LIS. It seems the muscle regains its strength with time? I would get an evaluation of your sphincter muscle done before having more surgery.
8/16-12/16: Fissure due to antibiotics
5/17: Botox to sphincter, fissure healed
9/19: Trigger point injections and pudendal nerve block
11/19: Botox to pelvic floor
8/20: Botox to pelvic floor in new location.
Currently in pelvic physical therapy

Thanks. All I know is my CRS says I'm tight down there. He mentioned dilation but I don't get why that would work. You stretch a muscle it has memory and goes back to its contracted state. Unless they dilate so much it actually tears muscle fibers?????? Anyway I'm pretty tired of the heal-tear-heal cycle I seem to be in. I don't think there is much more i can do on my own.
