Still in pain and confused

Postby patience_and_healing » 20 Oct 2017, 00:02

I went to get a third opinion from a different CRS today and she did a digital exam. She said the muscle is not very tight but since I have pain internally that means there's some inflammation going on. She pulled out the anoscope too, but I said no way in heck are you putting that up my bum! She wasn't convinced I still have a fissure, but was talking about the possibility of fistula. I have no discharge at all so don't know how that could be a diagnosis.

If anyone could help me out here I'll be very grateful. I had botox five months ago so it's long gone from my system. I still have pain during and after BMs, but not as much as before Botox, and it's a burning sensation. Could the reason simply be muscle tightness that could be resolved by physical therapy? :scratch:

My worry is that I have low resting pressure now and they will have to consider more invasive surgery to fix it, like flap surgery. :( Any opinions or ideas are much appreciated. I'm really not sure what to do next besides physical therapy.
