Fissure for 2 months.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Suffering from anal fissure for first time. First 3 weeks was soo painfull, doctor prescribed me diltiazem ointment. i never had pain during bm, but after bm the pain used to last for 5-6 hours. For last 4-5 weeks the pain is gone, but i do have mild discomfort and too much itching outside and inside of my anus. Is my fissure healing? And anybody familiar with those symptoms?

Thanks in advance. Take care

    Hi, it sounds as though your fissure has healed but the cream has irritated the skin. Its classic fissure pain for it to last for hours after a bm. If you are still using the cream, keep bm's soft, take something like Laxido or magnesium citrate if needed. Drink lots, especially as the weather is warm. It only takes one hard or difficult bm, and you can be back where you started. I had a chronic fissure for years, and it kept splitting again, but I am controlling things better now, and it hasn't bothered me for months. Take care.

      Just want to add few facts, i actually never had constipation. i dont know how the fissure happened to me. I am 25 years old. i have internal hemorrhoids and i used to strain a lot during my bm. How often the fissure comes back? and my fissure is inch inside of my anus what is not visible without stretching it. do u think its normal?

      Thanks again

      It's probably the straining that caused it. If you have soft bowel movements, different thing to constipation, you shouldn't need to strain. Eat more fibre and fruit, hemmorroids are caused by straining. My fissure doesn't come back now, although the scar tissue is still there and would split if I passed a hard bm.

      Hi, It was a colo rectal surgeon who told me to take Laxido, every day if need be forever if I wanted as it doesn't do you any harm long term. I also take 500mg tablet of magnesium citrate each day at around 6.0pm, I never had any more bleeding after I started that, and that was two years ago. Before then, I had pain and bleeding every day, dreadful. You need to get the balance right because Laxido does give you wind, and can give you the runs. Every two days might be enough for you. That's how I manage it now, I have two boxes of Laxido on prescription every month. I have told several people this on this forum, and a few have pm'd me and they have all said it has worked for them.

      Hi, I had the fissure for a few years, but also hems and a rectocele, I didn't know it was a fissure. No I didnt use creams once I started taking Laxido, two sachets at first, around 6 pm, then one sachet.

      The magnesium brand is SOLGAR! sold on amazon.

      I eat pretty much what I want for lunch and dinner, but healthily because I am diabetic. If I have snacks, I tend to have salted popcorn or a few peanuts, I have always eaten a high fibre diet.

    sounds like it's healing!

    no blood?

    try hot bath with coconut oil for the itching.

    best wishes
