Hi All, I have posted a few replies on here to discussions and thought Id write my own as really feel I need some help and advice,
I am 25 female and have been suffering with hemorrhoids for years, 8 I think now, they resulted in a nasty skin tag and when I though it couldn't get worse, I have now had a fissure for over a year.
Anyway, after many GP visits etc, and fainting from pain, I finally got put on the NHS waiting list for botox and skin tag removal. I thought to myself this is great to get this done and will solve all my problems, as I can't continue life as it is now, right? I got a date sent to me last week for the surgery, meant to be today, much quicker than I thought (Surely they would have wanted to review before, the Surgeon hasnt seen me in over 6 months?!) but after reading so many horrible posts about Botox I postponed it, so they will be sending a new date. But before I go ahead I really hope lots of you can advise me on your experience and give me information.
It is painful for me every day, I almost faint sometimes from the pain. And for some reason for the past 2 weeks, I have lots of blood during EVERY SINGLE BM - why now?? And is this something I should be worried about if it is every single time?
I am tip top about diet and exercise, I only weigh 54kg, I am healthy and active all the time!
The advice that I really want from you all - should I do this botox? Or should I accept life as it is now?? [sad] could things get alot worse if I go for Botox?
Also I don't know if I get 'spasms', what are spasms? I am in pain for a long while after a BM is that what they are?
I look forward to hearing from you all xx
