    Well it seems I just can't catch a break. Here we are nearly a week after the procedure and thankfully I would have to say I am basically pain-free when having a BM....BUT....yesterday, I developed the mother of all haemorroids in a 'new' location. I often get a bad one pop up on my right side, but this is right at the back, massive and excruciating!!! I'm thinking it might be thrombosed The specialist said that after the botox I may not even have issues with my usual hemmies, so I am at a loss as to why this has appeared.....I think I might have to put in a call to his office tomorrow....

    I went to the all-hours GP on the Sunday and he confirmed that it was an external thrombosed roid. Nothing to do but wait until it receeds of its own accord.

    That took about a week.....now, another two weeks down the track, I can already feel pain beginning at the original fissure site. Some days is worse than others, but thankfully its only during BMs, not all day! I have my surgical follow up next Friday, so we'll see how that goes. Looks like I'm gonna be in the 30%

    Just wondering how you are going.

    I suffered with a fissure after my last son was born.. I didn't have a bowel movement for nearly 2 weeks and when I did, it was like dry rocks.. it caused the fissure and let me tell you, it was the most excruciating thing I have been through. Mine took 6 months to heal. I lived my days around my bowel movements. I knew that if I pooped, I'd be in pain for at least 8 hours afterwards.. it was ridiculous. I tried creams, pills, prunes, psyllium husk, laxatives, more fibre, wet wipes, suppositories etc etc I went to see a specialist and they told me I would probably need to have surgery if I couldn't get it to go away on its own..they put me onto movicol as a last chance resort and within a few days, my bowel movements got so much easier and there was less pain and eventually it went away..

    I would never wish this on anyone. . Ever!!
    I hope you have recovered or are on your way to recovering.

    Hey Relle! Thanks for reading my story. I am so pleased to be able to say everything is fine. I can't believe I lived with that terrible pain for soooooo long when it was so easily fixed! I am usually 'anti-surgery' where ever possible, on the basis that once you 'alter' something, there is no going back. Thats why I was so afraid of the sphincterotomy, and so pleased my specialist offered the botox. Every thing is good now, although I am pretty consistent with a low daily dose of psyllium just to keep things 'gentle'.

    Hi Random541,

    I notice it says you're located in Brisbane. I am as well and am wondering who you saw for your surgery and if you were a public or private patient. I'm having trouble finding someone in Brisbane to do the surgery. Apparently if I go in as a public patient I will have to wait 6 - 12 months! and I wont be able to choose who does it!

    How do you know the difference between an anal fissure and constantly recurring haemorrhoids? I suffered for months after my DS2 was born, probably 9+ months on and off but eventually it went away permanently. I expect I'll go through it all over again after my next baby is born. Can anal fissures heal on their own?

    Hi NormaJean - sorry for the delay, it slipped my mind when I got home. It was DR DAMIEN PETERSEN at Spring Hill.

    Witherwings...Initially I thought it was just the worst ever haemorroids (I knew nothing about this anal fissure thing.). I went to a GP and she had a look and said it was a tear. I know hems can be uncomfortable and painful, but I was in constant pain, referring down my legs, aching through my buttocks and gluts continually. Passing wind was even painful - any movement in that area hurt. Then when actually 'wiping' it was like cutting with a burning knife. I still get hems, but nothing like the pain with the fissure. If you're unsure, go see your gp and don't put up with the pain!

    Thank you for sharing your experience! It sounds absolutely awful. I'll keep an eye out for those things next time and see my GP if it gets bad. Thanks!
