Fissure pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I have had fissure pain for 7 months now, 24/7 I have severe pain when I am up during the day, sitting, standing, walking.... when I go to bed, thank God, I have no pain. Is this normal with a fissure? Soon as I sit up the pain is back.

    in my experience, pain diminishes as the day progresses and finally goes away. are you following a routine to heal the fissure? What does your physician say?

    It is important to add fiber to your diet and use a fiber supplement. drink a lot of water during the day, take sitz baths (I started adding epson salts to the warm water to help felax the muscles). get a squatty stool to raise your feet when you go for a BM.

    i found that applying coconut oil sooths and moisturizes.

    there are prescription ointments with nitroglicerine that your doctor can prescribe.

      I have done all this with the exception of epsom salts in my sitz bath. I will try this. But it still it comes back.

      I'm using the nitro ointment now. How long have you been using it? My doctor gave it to me without instructions. I found something online. So I'm going to do 6 weeks twice a day then 6 weeks once a day.

      I've been on it three weeks and already had a reoccurance.

      Thank you.

      The peppermint doesn't burn? What do you do with that? Also, what do you do with the hot water bottle?

      Is the coconut oil in the sitz bath or do you apply it to the anus?

      i didn't have nitro... this past fissure episode but last year I went through two tubes until it finally healed. it tood a total of a out 3 months. the reason I get a prescription this time is because I was in such pain that the thought of inserting the index finger with the ointment just was something I was afraid to do. without the nitro, I healed and took a good 4/5 weeks; however, i do have bleeding on and off after a bm. I suspect it may be from an internal hemorrhoid but I Am seeing the colorectal physician next week so she can check the whole area.
