Rachael, that bloody toilet picture is disturbing!! lol iwas born in 1984 as well my doc has no problem doing the surgery actually been pushing for it which makes me wonder if he has my best intrest at heart or just the money..

sotired of this, i so feel you on the risk of incontinence but hey we cant live like this forever and from what ive read it sems like the chances are very low..i think its even lower if your a male like myself? are you m or f? whatever you decide please keep us updated and let us know if it was a success for you..whats rectiv? guess ill google it :)

Hi Rachel and FissureHome,

Thanks for the encouragement and empathy. I'm 48 and female. My doc will do the LIS if this Rectiv doesn't work. I think he just wants to give it every chance to heal naturally. I do appreciate that but am just so sick of the pain.

Hopefully vacation will give me enough distractions to not think so much about my butt!!

Hi STOT,
I do pray that you will enjoy your holiday. I am 35 yrs of age (the 1984 FH is just a year I love). My CRS isn't going to budge on the LIS, so maybe I will need to see what he comes up with. Then I might get a second opinion...

Fissurehome: my current doc has 5 star reviews as well.
Rachel: I think you should definitely seek another opinion.

praying for us all!!

A few more questions...does anyone here have IBS with diarrhea not constipation? That's my biggest concern with lis. Like I said before I feel like my life is over if I have the surgery and become incontinent or I live in pain for the rest of my life!

My only pain is sitting. My bms aren't bad. Actually when we were at Disney last week I felt really good. I was worried about all the walking but I felt so much better not sitting. Does anyone else have that? Would lis help that? Is that just pressure on the fissure?

Lastly, has anyone ever used essential oils for their fissure?

Thanks!

Wow so tired of this..i feel the same way..my bowel movemetns are a little uncomfortable but dont reallly hurt maybe a 1 of 10 no spasming after no need for hot baths..my main thing is just when sitting..but sitting is something you have to do..im so sick of laying down and not being able to get comfortable..i too am wondering if LIS will help this? i dont see how loosening our anal resting pressure will help us when sitting cause your still puttin all your weight on it..What kind of pain do you feel when sitting? i actually feel 2 types..sometimes i feel the coccyx bone really sore and bruised sometimes feels like the fissure is trying to split open from the pressure..

Hi Fissurehome,

I just feel burning/stinging when sitting. My coccyx never hurts. Standing always, always relieves the pain. So weird.

I see my CRS on the 16th for a follow up and to make possible surgery decisions. Just don't want to make the situation worse than it already is!
