How to deal with anal fissure in social/work life

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hi all again, I know we are currently in lockdown but I was wondering if anyone could give advice on how they deal with their fissure in work/social environment? I am very anxious to go back to work, take the transports and having to go out with friends in this painful situation.. I just want to stay home and do nothing that could make it worse. Thank you for the help!

    staying home is nice and convenient.

    making sure you have access to a bathroom at all time is good.

    also, planning your outing can be helpful

    This has been a terrible anxiety for me too. I've managed to get into a routine for the first time in my life of getting up and going to the loo first thing. Hasn't taken away the pain obviously but it lessened my anxiety of needing to go when at work or out.

    There was no way I CD have done it in a public place. I walk like John Wayne after ive been 😜

      Ah I wish mine was so scheduled haha! I'm not there yet but hope to be at some point. Like you I just can't do it outside of my house, especially with all the cleaning etc after a BM, being in the comfort of your home is the best. How do you deal in social situation if people comment on your eating/drinking diet? I'm anxious to go out with friends or colleagues and have to say I can't drink alcohol and only certain food, I don't want to be the one kinda ruining the mood by not being like everyone else..

      If I'm being honest I didn't go out in the first couple of months socially. However if I did see people I was quite open about my problem. There was no way I could hide it. I had to sit on one cheek as the pain was too awful to sit down properly.

      If I had an appointment to be at I always said I may need to cancel last minute as there was no way I could leave the house if I hadn't been to the loo 🙄

    I'm struggling with this also. My pain is severe at toilet, burning for a while afterwards, then constant dull throbbing aches for the rest of the day. I'm starting to cut myself off from the world until (I hopefully) get a resolution. The pain and discomfort are unreasonable. sometimes I feel like I'm going to go mad. Thankfully working from home, otherwise I'd have quit my job. These are very dark days indeed.
