Hello - I have news. i saw a specialist and he examined me and said I have a healed fissure. It has apparently healed well! However, any ideas why this has caused me so much pain for the last six months? He said scar tissue blah blah, keep stools soft and drink alot but no other real advise. He sent me off saying no more treatment to be done! I am better this week and I think not worrying about my appointment has helped. But will I always have pain from this old fissure?
I'm glad to hear most people are doing ok or at least not terribly!

SueMac, do not discontinue what brought you here. This healing is only apparent, as can be confirmed bu tens of people which experienced retears, so keep doing what you've done for at least one more year. Afterwards you might say that you healed for good IF you did not experience any pain or bleeding during this time.

I certainly hope that you somehow get to the bottom of it, Sue. That must be so frustrating, just like my still sore fissure with no reason why it's not 100% or at least 80%

Thank you! Yes it's will frustrating. So what has your doctor come up with recently to try to get you fixed?

My physio who I go to for my back has given me a couple of osteopaths who do visceral physical therapy. I presumed those is internal manipulation. I'm going it try that next. Loved to hear from anyone who has tried this.

My pelvic PT has been doing internal manipulation rectally for about 2 months now. It took a while for the pain to go down but I'm doing a lot better in terms of soreness than I was when she first started. I also use anal dilators at home to keep up the progress. I would be very careful with whoever you're going to who will be doing this for you. Feel free to ask them questions about it and if they've injured any patients before.
