Treatment

Postby Suffer » 27 Jun 2023, 09:23

Dear All
I would really like to share my story and to help everyone, who is currently suffering from this horrible disease. My story is pretty average for chronic anal fissure. I had Botox 3 times , one LIS and then discharged from my CRS, sines she was not able to suggest any other available treatment option. 3+ years with an unbelievable pain and no more treatment options. I tried different diets, supplements etc , nothing worked. I took excessive amounts of different laxatives and it made everything even worse. And then I found intermittent fasting. Without any hope I started to fast and then slowly my fissure began to heal. Now 2 years later, I am not taking any laxatives, I can still experience som exacerbation, but it is nothing compared to what it was. If you have tried everything , I would definitely suggest to try intermittent fasting and try to eat a lot of vegetables and less/no bread and sugar, when you are not fasting. I wish you all well and God Bless you all.

Thank you for sharing your story. I am glad that you overcame the pain of anal fissure, and that you found your way there via fasting. Each person is different, and each finds their way to a resolution that suits them as individuals - that's the lesson we draw from comparing notes here on the forum.

I do wonder if by reducing my food volume my BMs would be smaller. How did you structure your fasting?? I’d be interested to know!
