Anal Fissure

I was wondering if anyone has had surgery to repair an anal fissure? I have to go in the morning for surgery and I was wondering what I could expect after I get home.

Anal Fissure

I have an anal fissure too. It drives me nuts. No surgery tho. I wonder in they could fix when I have my TAH? That would be great! I have a history with bowel disease and have an illeostomy. I am used to having a pain in the butt! (to put it nicely!) LOL

I've been having pain and bleeding when I have a bowel movement. Just started about a month ago. How do you get an anal fissure?

You can get them from straining with constipation, or I imagine from giving birth......

I had one a looooooooooong time ago but did not require surgery to fix it.

it reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally hurt.

good luck to those getting theirs fixed!

anal fissure

Hi merefromky!

I had the anal fissure repair surgery (sphincterectomy) one year ago today!!! I don't know if your doctor gave you post-ops instructions, but mine said:

sitz bath after each BM, but at least 4 a day


use colace to help keep your stools soft

no insoluable fiber (raw fruits, veggies, whole grains) - only soluable (oatmeal, potatoes, pumpkin & citrucel) for 10 days

I know it hurts like******, but it will stop hurting in 4-5 days and you will feel 100% better....take care and e-mail me if you have any more questions or just want to vent!!!

Anal Fissure

Well day two and boy does my butt Hope this isn't too much info but I had a BM this morning and almost passed out.

Doc really didn't give me much instructions except sitz bath 2 time a day and take a stool softner. I told him before surgery that sometimes the anest. and pain meds make me sick. Well I felt sick in recovery and all I got was a cold wash cloth for my face. Then I had to call once I got home and literally beg for something for nausea. And to top it all off discharge paper said to resume normal activity today...yea right. I can hardly walk. Very apparent he doesn't have any idea how bad this surgery hurts.
