First if this is in the wrong section im sorry, its about my er um ... bum.
I have been suffering from some pretty horrendous anal fissures for over two months now and am not responding to any creams or suppositories. I've got a referral to see a specialist and i guess im wondering what i might be in for to get it fixed up?
Also , i am breastfeeding exclusively and am curious if the hormones and dehydration could be causing this? Any other breastfeeders have this problem and then find when they stopped breastfeeding it went away?
I'm drinking over 3L of water every day, drinking metamucil, taking coloxyl, drinking pear juice and taking multivitamins. My diet is really good. I dont know what else i can do myself to fix this, i am in so much pain i hav a panic attack every morning leading up to a BM. And god help me if i have to go twice!
Would love to hear from others who have gone thru this as i am feeling so alone in this. Please somebody give me some magical tip to fix this, as the idea of some sort of surgery to fix it scares the bejesus outta me.
