    hi Louise didn't have the operation but I'm going private and will get it done soon I hope. can only tell you tho I've had done another operation with general anesthetic and can only tell you its the best sleep you're goin to have for the rest of your life. . once I woke up I did ask the nurse if I could do it again. felt so rested its unbelievable don't fear it. I was scared too, really scared and the nurse started to talk to me once they were giving me the injections. and then I woke up. didn't even realise I felt asleep

      hi

      ive heard alot of people say that funnily enough

      alot of my aniexty from GA is my brother never came round after sedation and it took his life allthou he was very poorly and had muscular dystrophy it sticks in my mind ... silly i know as the circumstances were very different

      but this surgery is a must ive suffered enough now and want my life back

      counting down the days now

      hope you get the op as i think once you go past 8 weeks with a fissure the likely hood off it healing is low and it just gets worse as time goes on

      I understand tho why you got scarred by it. and sorry about your loss. at the moment I'm dealing with a fissure plus 2 fistula. used the glycerin ointment which took away the spasms after the bm . but still dealing with other problems , the worse I believe is gone, but Cant stand up or walk for too long. after 15 minutes ill have to sit down or the burning starts. hope everything goes alright with you. my surgeon told me to do the botox. next time I see him I will say to him I want to do the l

      ouch poor you

      i have piles alongside the fissure

      ive never felt pain like it

      ive been off sick from work since march as like you i cant mobilize for long at all i spent most of my days laying down even then im still in pain but more bareable

      my surgeon was reluctant to do botox as success rate is low and i told him i didnt want that anyway i just want the surgery he did have to warn me i could become incontinent later in life i said i dont care later on i want to enjoy my life now as a young woman and that was it all booked in

      thankyou its been ten years since hes been gone

      he was only 21

      but i got to remember his heart was weak and he was very poorly

      ive got to be a big girl and stop being silly

      who would of thought something so small could be so deliberating and ruin ones life

      fissures are just awful

      i hope you get the surgery as it sounds you need it

      i will of course keep this going and update my progress etc
