Dear friends.... I am frustrated not only with having to manage the pain in the rear but also having to deal with GPs and Specialists who do not volunteer essential information about this nightmare problem willingly and comprehensively...
I have put all sorts of creams, ointments, portions, suppositories up my rear for 8 weeks now, and have radically changed my diet as well. but this has not been because of medical advise but rather due to my own processes of learning what various regimes of treatment do to me... doctors are eager to give you the usual reassuring pat on the shoulder and the "just take this and that and it will be okay" speech. In the meantime, the frequent visits to consult them and then those to the pharmacist are racking up huge bills over time. this is not fair...
firstly, they should tell us what we are really up against... to tell us frankly that there is no cure for anal fissures and that everybody's body basically does what it wants in response to the litany of treatments... if it wasn't for forums like this one, I would have gone nuts cause frankly speaking half the stuff out there that they are selling doesn't do anything at all.... it was some guys testimony about coconut oil that basically doused the fires in my anus.
secondly, the fissurectomy too is overly simplified with "oh it's a light procedure that will take under one hour, and you will be asleep and so you won't feel a thing" and yet, from accounts on this forum, the worst that could happen isn't the skidmarks... that's just soiled underwear. the worst is the grueling post operation recovery that often spans between 30 days to 6 months... why won't they tell us that? and so you go in hoping to be back at work in 4 days and no, you can't show your ass up at work for weeks.... this is not ethical.
I am in pain, at wits end with all sorts of creams lodged in my buttocks, while choking on food coming down the other way for fear that a BM will attract epic levels of pain the following morning when I have to go.
why isn't there a bloody cure for fissures by now!!!! it's a horrid condition that shuts down your life.... I mean, COME ON PEOPLE!!!!!
