Hello. I am a 24 year old female and have been dealing with my anal fissure for 11 months now. (when my son was born) I thought I had been suffering from hemmorids and it wasn't until 7 months postpartum that I was diagnosed with an anal fissure. The pain at times has been debilitating to the point that all I can do is lay in bed, rolling around and bawling my eyes out. This thing is destroying me, there has not been one day in the past 11 months that I have not been bothered by it, if not in excrusiating pain. It is affecting my daily life and my relathionship with my fiance. I truly cannot live this way. There have been days I have had to leave work in tears and days my fiance has had to stay home from work just to care for our son because I was in too much pain to do so myself. Upon being diagnosed 3 months ago I was prescribed a cream and was told to return in a few months. It did absolutely NOTHING. About a week and a half ago I had botox injections, which were EXTREMELY painful. My doctor did not numb the area whatsoever and I was in severe pain. You think I would receive some form of numbing the area?? Hopeful things may be looking up finally I am sad to say I feel as if the botox has made things much worse. My doctor said there would be no side effects. He couldn't be more wrong. My butt feels like it is being turned inside out and falling out after a BM because everything is so relaxed down there. I literally have to push it in after using the bathroom. I have experienced gas incontinence to the point I have had to walk away from people mid sentence. I had to leave work early (I am a server) because the incontinence was so bad and I was deeply embarrassed and can tell no one what I am going through. I know my next step is surgery, which I truly want to avoid at all costs. I have reached my wits end though. I eat healthy, exercise, and am in good shape. I drink over a gallon of water a day, take 3 stool softeners a day, do sitz baths, take a daily fiber supplement and am still no better off. Please please help with any advice or techniques that have helped!! I am ready to try just about anything to aviod a surgery.
