It has been close to month since I updated this thread. Since I had my abcess I have 3 appointments with my CRS. The first one was to lance it. Then in the 2nd he use a little silver nitrate to cauterize the abcess wound.

Today was my 3rd one. He said my fissure is almost healed (1.5 months since LIS). He said that the surgical wound was still bleeding a tiny bit. He cauterized the surgical wound today and has asked me to follow up in 6 weeks. Hopefully the surgical wound heals up as well.

Other than this I am feeling almost normal. But the surgical wound not healing fully is still not letting sleep peacefully. Hopefully it clears up soon.

Hi missy moo,

Thanks for asking. I have been wanting to post back here. Finally got around to doing it. Saw the CRS on 08/28 (after 6 weeks). I was beginning to feel much better by then. He said the fissure was completely healed. He said there was still a tiny part of the surgical incision that had not completely healed, which he cauterized again. I started feeling normal a week after this appointment. It is about 3 weeks since the appointment and I am feeling finally back to normal now. But still being super careful with my diet. But beginning to do my normal activities now. Played a couple of hours of tennis today. Feeling good. Hoping that your specialist helps you get rid of the fissure permanently!

To anybody wanting to know, I had an abscess 10 days after my LIS surgery. I was dreading a fistula. But I have healed completely from abscess without any further complications.

Thanks a lot for everybody on this board for helping out during my trying times with the fissure. Wish every one all the best and hope you all heal soon! I may not visit the board as often anymore. But if anybody has any questions feel free to PM me and will be happy to help out!

short version - GET THE SURGERY. I waited a year and a half and wished I did it sooner. If you have tried all of the conservative approach and it still hasn't healed then it likely won't.

Long version - Read my diary on the surgery.
