Painful Fissure Very depressed ... is it possible to feed baby after LIS

Posted , 4 users are following.

I delivered vaginally 5 weeks before after which i have developed a fissure that is extremely painful. I have tried applying all tropical creams from dizelium to anobliss but nothing seems to work. Day by day my condition is getting worst. I use creams, laxatives as prescribed but i am not able to sit even for 2 min. Currently i m not even able to sit and feed my baby.  The pain us 24/7. It never seems to get low. I am in a situation that i would do anything to get rid of the pain. I m even ready for an LIS surgery. But my only concern is will i be able to continue breast feeding after LIS is done. Is the recovering stage very painful. I am scared to face the surgery but my current situation is too worse i m not able to sit i spend my day and night lying on my bed in pain and even if pain subsides a bit i still cant even imagine sitting for a second too.

    Ugh. I am so sorry. I feel your pain. I was in the same boat for months and couldn’t find a thing to help me. I was extremely close to the surgery as well. I was finally able to heal and I think the thing that helped me the most was Magnesium Citrate. You can find quality pills at the health food store OR you can use Natural Calm. It makes your stool easier to pass/softer. It also helps a great deal with anxiety. You can’t really take too much of it. My little guy was breastfeeding at the time and he did ok with it too. I highly recommend it because like you I had tried everything!

    Coconut oil Epsom salts and peppermint essential oils three drops
