Today is the Day!!! LIS Ahhhhhh!

Postby inneedofahealing » 12 Aug 2013, 06:00

Hello beautiful people! I am on my way to surgery. I'm in pain now so I wonder how I will feel after surgery. I have an hour drive back home so I got a ring cushion. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I am more nervous of the unknown. I know God will protect me and I believe that my healing is on it's way. Over the last couple of days I have been back and forth about getting the surgery. The fissure is still painful but more tolerable. It is funny how things seem to get a little better when you decide to take a step to do something drastic about it. I know surgery is the best option for me because I have dealt with fissures on and off for 6 years. I'm ready for them to be gone forever! I think my anatomy down there is too narrow. This surgery will help loosen things up. Hopefully I can give an update today after surgery but if not I will give an update tomorrow, Lord willing. Those who believe in the power of prayer please say a prayer for me :)

Please try to kick out bad thoughts. Think about RELIEF you will feel after a while.
Everything will be OK. Remember that You have one of best doctors and hospitals around the world!
I did what you asked for and now I keep my fingers crossed since Botox seems not be helping to me at all and I am about to do LIS.
Greetings from sunny Poland!

Hey! I survived! I am on my way home now. Thanks everyone for the encouraging words and prayers. The CRS said that my fissure was bad and he could tell it had been there for a while. He didn't have to do an open LIS which is great. I have gauze and tape on my butt now. It almost feels like nothing was done. I guess I am still a little numb. I will post daily updates!
