Botox procedure in 2 days

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I went to see the specialist a year ago regarding

The pain I had in the area. She said it was a very large fissure and to be honest no idea how it started.

My doctor gave me everything to try but nothing has helped. In the first 3 months I was in extricating pain unable to sleep, was pacing at 3am because of the pain and now I'm able to tolerate it but I think it's because I have a high pain threshold now.

I'm scheduled in for Botox in 2 days because my doctor says it's the first thing to do before surgery especially because I'm only 29 and there's risks associated. I'm a bit nervous but hoping it's a success. Wish me luck!

    Hope it goes well!!!

    Here are some suggestions I have for you to help you through anyways: 

    1. Try somee zinc oxide in the form of calmoseptine which has menthol to soothe the area down there as well. Calmoseptine can be bought at almost any local drugstore and can be bought online too.

    2. Try squatting when going on the toilet instead of sitting. This is a much  helathier position and the poop sometimes will just slide out,  no pushing or straining involved.

    3. I would definately take a fiber supplement, specifically metamucil  is what I take evveryday,  in ordr to allow your stools to be soft and to allow them to pass thorugh easily. THis being said, with any fiber supplemetn, you must drink lots of water when using them, or they will not work veffectively. Also, do not take too much as too much fiber can irritate your bowels on the way  out and diarreah actually does worse down there.

    4. I would recommend getting a sphicteronomy surgery if htings dont get better. I waited it out, gave up, had the surgery, and was able to heal within about two weeks. I had a chronic fissure, so I knew where you are ocming from with v all the pain and discomfort.

    Try listening to music to distract your mind a bit, especially when going to the bathroom. If you are in writing pain, distract yourself with a movie or TV show right after. 

    Hope this helps!!!

    Best,

    Myles

      Humor is the best medicine! Although, on a more serioius note, be careful laughing if you are in pain. When I had my fissure, I tried watching comedies to distract myself, and the slight movements from laughing actually caused me more pain. But still, humor helps a ton!

    May I ask how the procedure went?

    I think this is my next step as none of the creams are working x

      Melissa, I had the Botox procedure 10 days ago and I wrote a whole post about it with updates, it is too much to copy and past here, lol. I don’t really know how this website works or if you can google it. It is Desperate: Anal Fissure Botox Treatment. Just a few things that happened and what to expect.
