I have been free of my chronic fissure for over 3 years now after dealing with chronic pain for almost 3 years. It all started in 2009 when I began to have blood in my stool off and on for about 12 months. I didn't really think anything about it because it did not happen at every bowel movement. I was at the time working out a lot and eating a lot of protein and a lot of nuts and not alot of water which I think caused my issue turn into a chronic fissure. The first time the was at age 29, the fissure pain came was after about a year of the on and off anal bleeding after and I got constipated and noticed a sharp pain while using the bathroom that I had never felt. After going I noticed a lot of blood in my stool but just cleaned myself as normal and went back in my living room to watch some tv. About 15 min. went by and then for the first time I felt the severe pain of what I didn't yet know was a chronic fissure. (Found out a year later after visit to Mayo Clinic in Florida) The pain of a chronic fissure is unexplainable unless someone has ever had it. It feels like you are being stabbed in the rectum and I can understand any and all of the issues, pain, mental and physical problems it can cause for someone and there family. I would like to give my advise to others with this issue to help them quicker than what it took me because of my stubbornness that I originally had. A lot of what you hear from doctors and creams told to use will not work or only for a short period when you think the fissure is gone and then it comes back. I tried everything and read everything for a long period of time and what I found that worked was not the creams as much as my major change in diet and health. Mostly what eventually helped was a liquid diet, lots of vitamins, oils for a long period(I lost 60lbs) and eventually, gradually adding solid food to your diet. No strenuous body, muscle workouts so that your anal muscles are not strained in any way. There is a lot more that I did and took place but I would be typing for 2 more days. If anyone has any questions, I would be happy to help. If you have a fissure or a chronic fissure I want to let you know that you can heal it. You will have to be devoted to doing it and very very positive. I am a very positive person and I as well thought about how I did not know how I could continue my life if the pain would not stop. It will stop and you can heal your fissure.
