so i saw my crs today and told him i was still getting pain even with consistently soft stool. he said he did a conservative cut because i'm a woman and that most of his patients are totally healed by now. but i may need more time seeing as my fissure is 7 years old and stubborn. he didn't want to say the LIS has failed yet... he prescribed me diltiazem and said to come back after 3 months if it still hasn't healed.... i hope that is the case. i hope it just needs a bit more time, rather than me going through another surgery.

nah. loose stool = painless. but a formed soft stool causes pain.
sphincter is still too tight after LIS. and the cream hasn't helped.
think at this rate i will have to get another LIS, which i really don't want to go through again.

That's such a shame, hope you feel better soon.

I don't understand why sphincter would still be tight if it has been cut via a LIS. Do they've offer another LIS after having one already as I thought they can only cut partial sphincter muscle 30% to avoid incontenence and by having another LIS wouldn't that increase the risk of incontenence?
