I know there's a few threads on this topic already but I would still like to hear some comforting words from someone who knows what I'm going through.
About three weeks ago I was very intoxicated on a night out and I ended up going home with a guy that I had been seeing briefly previously and I don’t know how it happened but we ended up having anal intercourse without any lube or preparation what so ever. The following week I was in pain and was bleeding when I went to the toilet but I didn’t think much of it as I thought it would get better, and it was a natural thing to happen considering what I had done. I was experiencing pain when trying to poop, and for a while after, but that was about it. Then over the course of a short few days it got progressively worse. To the point where I was not only in pain after going to the loo, but constantly, 24/7. Couldn’t sit down, could barely walk.. I even fainted once because of the pain I was in. This is when I contacted my GP who confirmed I have an anal tear. I’ve had laxatives and stool softeners prescribed, as well as a local anaesthetics cream and I’ve changed my diet completely (to be honest I barely eat, but when I do,) I eat mostly fruit smoothies and soups packed with beans etc and I drink at least 3L water per day. I also take frequent sitz baths as my gp advised. Absolutely NOTHING helps. I am in the worst pain I have ever experienced and have been for 2 weeks now. I can’t go to work, can’t see friends, I can’t do anything. I’ve been in contact with my GP several times since and I feel like no one understands how much this effects me and how much pain I am in constantly. I have only had it for a few weeks and I feel like I am already at the end of my rope. My GP keeps telling me it is not a chronic fissure as I’ve only had it for 3 weeks but if I need to wait this out I don’t know how to handle it. I am so desperate I just cry every day as my whole life revolves around this and I am in constant, unbearable pain that I can’t even explain and wouldn’t even wish upon my worst enemy.
I just want to hear if anyone has got any advise for me of what to do now, and if anyone wanted to share their own stories, if anyone has recovered from this condition and how.
Because at the moment I just feel very hopeless and can’t see any light at the end of the tunnel.
