I first got my anal fissure back in December 2015. When I talked to my first doctor about it, he ended up sugarcoating how it wouldn't affect my life and made it sound like it would heal after 2 weeks.
When I found out more about anal fissures from the 2nd doctor I got really p****d at my first doctor for not being honest with me on my condition. In March 2016 was when I found out I can have a bowl movement without any pain as long as I use a squatty potty. I also have somewhere between 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day.
I ended up seeing a third doctor in November 2016 because I felt that the 2nd doctor I've been seeing were lying to me. My third doctor revealed to me my 2nd doctor was ignorant about one thing but didn't say anything about the other possible lies.
In 2017 My third doctor made this promise to me that I don't need surgery and that I can heal my anal fissure in a natural way to the point where I don't need to take stool softener anymore because it would be harder for the tear to reopened, but that he told me the hemorrhoids should be given attention first before we get to that problem. What he said to me has encouraged me to see him once every month because I want to always know the update each month.
I remember feeling kind of annoyed by how long the process is taking(this is back in September 2018) so I asked him about it and than he says how I'm probably going to be on stool softener for the rest of my life and that it's basic common sense how the anal fissure will always get reopened easily. I got mad, but in the inside, and brought up while asking him how come in 2017 you would tell me it's possible to heal it in a way where I don't need stool softener, and he just chose to not answer me, he looked at me like I didn't say anything.
I can't keep living like this because ever since 2016 I've been working for only 4 hours a day at my job. The reason I don't work 8 hour days anymore because I can't poop at public restrooms, the squatty potty doesn't work on the toilet at my work. So if I ever felt the need to go poop I wouldn't have to wait long because of the 4 hour work day. I now miss working 8 hour days.
I can't keep on living like this. I remember reading something online back in 2016 how a certain type of surgery would work but I made the mistake of not putting it in my favorites so I don't know where it's at.
Anyone who has the answers to my problem please respond.
