I'm a 41 year old female and I've been suffering on and off for the last nine years with an anal fissure. I have been using nifidepine ointment and in November I noticed when I inserted it to my anus, I could feel some sort of fibrous piece of skin. Of course that has now freaked me out. I tried to forget about it, but recently I've had flare-up and once again I've been using the nifidepine ointment and I can feel this fibrous skin again. It's about two inches into the anal cavity and it's soft.
I've been doing some research, but I have no idea what this could be. Has anyone else experienced this and what should I do?
I have a reluctant doctor who I had to beg to refer me to a specialist (two years of begging). When I saw the specialist seven years ago he diagnosed the fissure, prescribed the nifidepine and my doctor (who didn't even know what it was for) has been giving me refills ever since when I have a flare-up.
Do I go back to my GP and have her examine this? I'm freaking about it just thinking of seeing her.
