My first major fissure was toward the back but I think I have a new one toward the front. Joy.
Bad fissure Feb 2005, still have it January 2006. On Pentasa and Imuran 100mg. Some slight swelling and ulceration of terminal ileum. No other symptoms. Now on Remicade!

I have two.  12 o'clock and 6 o'clock.  Neither are fun.

I had five at once. Mine were not on the midline [ie 12 & 6 o'clock]. I had 2 on one side and three on the other. I was so very relieved when they finally healed up.

I believe a fissure is a small tear of the anus. Feels like a paper cut especially when having a bm. Mine in 9 o'clock

Yes, a papercut sometimes, a dagger wound others.
 
I think it's funny how everyone keeps making clock relations (6 o'clock, 12 o'clock). Just so nobody brings up "digital". OUCH. HA HA HA!!!!
