Anal fissure


Tue, September 03, 2019 1:39 PM

 Hey everyone! I have been dealing with an anal fissure for about seven months now. has anybody had the surgery for them?  I saw a specialist about four months ago and he gave me some cream and they seem to go away for about two weeks at most. I’m worried that my only option is to have the surgery but I’m so scared that the pain of having a BM after will be horrendous. Can anybody tell me how bad it is and is it really worth it?
