    Laxido, one sachet every day, magnesium citrate 500 mg, get from amazon, take one or two daily. Changed my life, healed my fissure.

    good luck.

      It stopped bleeding within a week, after bleeding every time for years.

      Now six months down the line, never bleeds, not sore. Still take laxido and magnesium every day, prob will for life.

      Yep had colonoscopy, gastroscopy, ct, and MRI. My fissure had been bleeding for years, I had a rectocele, thought that was why.

      Dr was worried, I had become very anaemic, I thought it was because of rectal bleeding, turned out I had gastric ulcers, that’s how I ended up being tested for just about everything under the two week rule in case I had bowel cancer.

      Are you Male or Female?

    Robert -  Find an excellent reputable surgeon and go have the surgery.   I too had fissure problems for several months and I trying to deal with diet alone but was losing hope.    I had the surgery roughly 2 years ago and I am soo very thankful I did.  Fissures are a distant memory now.   Not a one since.  I still take Metamucil daily but that's no big deal.  I'm in OR, USA.
