    Make sure you go see a colon rectal specialist don't get caught up on this Botox treadmill that is only temporary.

    Go for the surgery if it's recommended.

      I did see a colorectal surgeon he performed my surgery of polyp removal and Botox! Here in Australia the Botox is the surgery for an anal fissure no one really recommends the LIS the Botox has worked heaps but I'm Struggling to actually heal which may still b the case with LISsad

    Have you tried taking senna. It may help to product softer stools.

    I never had botox or a fissure but a perianal abcess for about 6 months. My doctor told me to take a stool softener and senna, both at over the counter.

    The stool softener usually produced a hard stool, but the senna helped alot

    I don't know if this would help you in your situation, but I thought I should give you my experiences.

    It is always best to check with your doctor if nothing helps

    I am not a doctor.

    Good luck in getting the help you need

      I've lost hope but. This is the third week post op and still in pain everyday.

      I haven't looked because I'm too scared. Have you tried seeing a doc again and explaining what's happening to u ?

      It's a brutal thing to go through sad have u at least gotten a little bit better since before the Botox ?

      My next appointment is 6y weeks ago but he told me if I haven't fully healed I'll need more Botox sad I'm so much better like the only sensation I have it burning passing a stool but I'm stuck in a vicious cycle where it really tears every time the poop is abit harder or dryer and I give up i don't know what to do

      Oh really sad how long was ur appointment after ur Botox ? Is there a chance that if u wait it will heal?

      The pain is a little better but I don't think it's because of the Botox I think it's because I've focused on my diet and BM. Before I wouldn't go for days. Now I go everyday I think that's what's helping. But I'm the same. After BM There's a burn and it hurts so much that I can't move.

      What I do is pour warm water and keep washing the area until it feels a bit better. Try doing the same
