    I had the exact same problem. I had an AF that was misdiagnosed for 6 years as hemorrhoids. I had torn during giving birth, and when they finally looked they discovered it wasn't hemorrhoids after all. There is a cream compound a Dr. can prescribe for you that relaxes the muscles, but unfortunately that didn't help me. I have heard of people having botox shots as well, but I haven't heard anyone say they've had great success with that. I finally gave in and had LIS surgery over a year ago, and I swear it was the BEST decision I have ever made in my LIFE. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I was in horrible pain for about 4 hours after every BM, and it would come at the most inconvenient times. It got to the point where the pain was constant, and I gave in. The pain after surgery was nothing compared to the pain I was in before. I never popped a single pain pill after surgery. A warm bath after a BM instantly took any aching or pain away. In about 3 weeks and I was back to feeling like my old self. It took about 6 months for the bleeding to totally stop, but I wasn't in pain. I hope you find a solution that helps. Best of luck to you!

      Hi

      I am scheduled for surgery Monday but I am terrified. I've had the AF for about 6 weeks. I'm terrified regarding the surgery!! Yesterday after my BM I had very little- almost non existent pain. I am so undecided regarding what to do..,should I have the surgery or wait and just continue Metamucil

      Hi. What will be your advise to take before surgery I mean stool softeners. As you know after surgery the most important thing is not to get constipated. The doctor will put under general anastetik too see what going on. Is he gone do surgery straight away or there will be conversation about it? I will go for surgery that's for sure. Tanks

      Well I had couple of times when I thought I recovered, but then again blood comes out and doesn't feel confident. I don't feel right know much of a pain. Only spasm. I walk alote 10000steps a day. When I put cream I can feel the cut it's there. I would recommend you to do surgery even I haven't done for my self . 1-2 week of more misery. Because the more you keep the cut there the more complication. Even if you recover it will come back at some point.
