I'm a 28 year old female who is otherwise in good health (I exercise regularly, I eat very healthy/am a vegetarian, and I drink tonssss of water).
I've had anal fissures on and off for the past two years. Last year, I had anal dilatation as well as two treatments of infared coagulation. This was after giving rectiv a try. After about 3 months of being fissure free, they ended up coming back.
I have been seeing a new GI for the past four months an he has me on this ointment that he has specfically made for fissures that is apparently different from Rectiv. It's helpful in healing my fissures, but doesn't necessarily stop new ones from forming ones the old ones heal.
I should also add that I have IBS-C which, of course, impacts my stools. I recently started taking Linzess for the constipation, which has helped tremendously with my BM's. Unforunately, the fissures continue to perssit.
I also have a mild form of VonWillebrand (blood clotting disorder) and I wonder whether or not that impacts the chronic nature of my fissures. I wonder if anyone on here also has both chronic fissures and VWD? Otherwise, does anyone have any other recommendations for things to do to help with the fissures?
