I had Botox and a fissurectomy performed 10 days ago and I had completely underestimated how disruptive it was going to be. I'd thought maybe 1 week off work, then working from home the next week, but I'm nowhere near being ready for that yet. I can walk maybe 1/2 mile but then it's just too painful to continue. On the plus side whilst everything is very tender and sore, I'm not in the extreme levels of pain that I know some of you are suffering. Fortunately BMs are no longer causing sharp pain, but the overall tenderness and burning sensation is the biggest problem right now. This morning I've tried putting a thin layer of zinc oxide cream (Sudacrem in the UK) around by BH to see if that can calm down the redness/nappy rash that has taken hold. Not seeing the CRS for another 2 weeks so hoping things are better by then. It's frustrating that I'm currently in a far worse state than before the procedure, but if it fixes things long term then that's a price worth paying.
