Fissurectomy post op help needed

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all, I had a Fissurectomy op two days ago and am still in the most terrible pain. It is as bad as before if not worse! When can I expect to feel better. I am beside myself with this pain and have forgotten what a normal life feels like. It’s has been months of anal fissure pain and now post op I am still in agony! Help please

    It’s only two days, it’s just time you have to get you have ice packs? After surgery is always the hardest, stick with it. Try to find something good on tv, anything that will distract you a bit. You’ve got the worst part over, now it’s recovery time. You can do this, you’re going forward to less pain, be brave, it will get better.

      Thanks for the encouragement Laura. No, I need to get some ice packs. I am using a sitz bath every few hours but the pain after a BM is intense. Somehow I thought it would be better immediately. The doctor seemed to think it would be.  But if anything the pain is even worse sad

      Honestly dr’s don’t know half the time. You’ve been cut, you’re still healing, you’re just at the awful post surgery bit. Two days is nothing, give it time.

    HI Debra. please keep us posted as to your progress as I am thinking about having this procedure but I am hesistant being that I already had a partial LIS and it didn't quite work for me. Now the colon-rectal surgeon wants to do this on me and inject botox on both sides but I am so scare of the post -op pain. Hope your are doing better.

    Hi Debra, 

    Just wondering how you are healing as I am contemplating having the same procedure as you as I already had LIS and it didn’t quite work for me. I have had Botox injections twice also since the surgery and still in some pain. Last resort is fissuretomy with removal of skin tags which I now have (lots). I didn’t have them before the LIS surgery but the are growing like weeds and causing pain. Please advise. I hope you heal soon.
