I have been in excruciating pain since October last year. The pain has been unbearable, also suffering from piles! Well on Wednesday this week I had Botox injections for my fissure, and happy to let you know that so far, no pain! What a life changing outcome! Any help or chats welcome x

    Great news , hope that's the cure for you , just to say if it doesn't work as mine didn't go for the sphinctorectomy it's honestly no worse than the Botox & I only wish I had gone gown that road first !

    I had no pain on either ops which really surprised me & fully recovered from a chronic fissure now for 12 months ! Good luck 👍

    I hope to have the same success. Two years ago I had a bad but of constipation which lead to piles and fissures. I'm now left with anal stenosis (scar tissue) making it difficult and painful to have BM. I'm having a procedure next month to have it removed. I'm nervous but if all goes well look forward to having a normal life

    Hi sherry poppy

    That is fantastic! So happy for you smile I had the same outcome with mine and cannot explain the relief! My consultant warned me there might be an issue with holding wind as it can effect your sphincter muscles, have you had any trouble with that? I've just had a surgery to lay open my fistula and ive noticed since then I don't have to strain particularly to pass wind, which is slightly concerning as I would rather have more control in that area!

    Happy recovery xxx

      Hi, thank you, cannot tell you how worried I was about having it done! Yes wind is a problem as I take regucol and mostly eat salad! But I have had no leaking which I was told I may suffer with. I hope you are recovering well also! Just so glad I am not in such uncontrollable pain! Fingers crossed it will work, only time will tell x

    So glad you are doing better!  I had Botox injection in January and while I was feeling no pain at all, it has recently come back...not as bad as it had been but still experiencing some pain.  I was hoping this was the solution but if the pain gets any worse or continues, I will need to go for surgery.

    Hope yours lasts and solves the problem.
