Hi NWJ - Thank you for posting the update and glad to hear that you are on your way to recovery! I hope you have the same experience as I did with the first BM, which was totally pain free! : )

One thing to keep in mind over these next few months: whenever you get frustrated with a plateau or a setback, just keep reminding yourself that it's totally NORMAL for this type of recovery to move in ups and downs. Try to be patient with your body and give yourself time (lots and lots of time). At 3.5 months post op I still have to remind myself of this, but I can't tell you how blessed I feel to have some normalcy back. It had been 15 years of problems for me and now it's like time has been reversed and I've gained all of those years back! Yes, there have been adjustments and new routines to put into place, but I'm very happy to say that it was totally worth it. The people on this board really helped with the recovery process so please reach out and post if you have any questions or concerns as you move through yours. I wish you a very successful recovery!

Hi North West Jen, I'm glad you did the LIS and fissurectomy because your odds now are very high that you will be completely cured of this terrible problem. Keep hydrated and follow all the instructions. My first week post-op was very difficult and painful but yours may not be. Even if it is, remember that it WILL get better soon, and in time you will be rid of the problem. Keep us posted. All best wishes.
