Pain after walking

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone. I am also waiting on surgery for 3 fissures. I think it's safe to say we are all living our life in constant pain.

Since we have been in lockdown I have tried to go for a gentle walk each day. There is discomfort throughout the walk but the agony starts when I get home. I find having another bath is the only thing that helps at all. Does anyone else experience this?

    Hi, yes me too. i daren't walk away from the house because I'm talking laxatives and have to go very quickly, usually if I've been standing or walking about the house...the pressure pain is so bad.

    Waiting to see the specialist again once things are open again...actually praying something can be done. i gave 3 fissures too. i cant believe how many of us are suffering in silence x

    Am in same situation following 2nd Botox 4 weeks ago. Have spoken to CRS on phone and he really wasnt expecting this pain to he present from what he considered to be a small fissure. But whilst we’re in lockdown he can't see me to check what's going on, so as stop gap has prescribed antibiotics in case of infection, and pain killers (Amitriptyline and Lidocaine). In the meantime I'm largely out of action. On plus side I'm not in massive pain and when laying down it’s not too bad i really feel for everyone suffering from this.

    Hi Barbara19257,

    There is no doubt in my mind that any type of aerobic exercise (walking, running, biking, elliptical) aggravates the fissure. I've tested it over and over. The exercise is good for your digestion (keeps things moving) but irritates the fissure. Therefore its a trade-off. I would try to keep limited walking to facilitate digestion but limit the aggravation to the fissure.

    Yes, it's painful, itching, burning, we are all in the same boat. I'm 3 days after the LIS operation. Its no fun, but the pain is worth it as in the end the pain should go away. Feel good dear.
