I have been suffering from an anal fissure (tear in anal tissue) since the birth of my baby 9 months ago, I also now have a hemorrhoid. The pain I experience when I go to the toilet is excruciating and is getting worse, after I have to lay down for a while, which is very difficult with an active 9 month old. I went to the surgeon and he prescribed a cream to use but said I would have to stop breastfeeding while using it. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! I am taking metamucil, coloxyl and using salty rags on my backside.
My questions are have you been through this pain? What did you do to solve the problem? Did you have surgery? What was the recovery time?
Thanks in advance!
