      Fissures take months to heal so don’t think all is ok when you have a BM with no pain 

      Just get into a routine 

      My surgeon said the key is to eat daily and poop daily

    I’m afraid with the anal fissure the diet has to be kind of strict 

    My diet since the fissure and now it’s healed is 

    Porridge breakfast 

    Lunch - sandwich tuna on whole meal bread 

    Dinner - broccoli carrots fish cauliflower and little potatoe 

    Lots of veggies 

    I also take 2 x movicol or laxido throughout the day 

    When I had the fissure I took 2x  Senna at night also 

    Must keep the BM soft 

    Whilst the fissure was there I pooped in a sitz bath ( horrid - yes) but I was willing to try anything 

    After BM another site bath with coconut oil and Epsom

    Salts also a little peppermint oil 

    My bum lives in water! 

    Water - lots as much as you can drink 

    I never wipe with paper just jump onto sits bath   , if I’m out I use coconut wipes 

    Creams- forces of nature fissure control and pro kits m was good , for me however everyone is different also Bert Bees lip balm with peppermint oil ( don’t ask me how or why ..) but was brill ! 

    You life revolves around your bum I’m afraid , 

    Try to have one BM a day I also took one 30mg codeine straight after BM and 2 xparacetmol

    Water bottle is good between ya cheeks !

    All above worked for me however since the fissure has healed I still have sand routine I dare not change 

    Still take Movicol religiously ! 

    Smoothies - need BM soft to allow fissures to heal 

    My surgeon gave me Gtn that worked also for me - he told me to use it as needed - so I used it three times a day and even now use it twice a week 

    Hope you find relief soon

    Hopd the above helps  a little
