Before I got diagnosed, I went to a surgon to look at my fissures. I have three in 'odd places.' They are quite painful when I use the bathroom. Most of my pain is from my fissures. When I have a flare and am constantly running to the bathroom, it is a nightmare for my ******. So much pain.
I know I cannot get surgery for them. But does anyone know if there is any sort of cream that relieves some of the pain?
Diagnosed with CD in Jan 07 after going to different doctors for fissures or what I thought were hemmeroids. After getting a colonoscopy they found out I had Crohns. I had no idea what the hell CD was, but once I read up on it, realized I've had mild symptoms since age 12. I'm now 19.
I have mild to moderate CD, and don't have many symptoms other than my 3 fissures, stomach pain after eating, diarreah, bloating, cramping, gastritis on occasion, and then other random health issues that are caused from CD like gingivitis for example.
Just got off of Entocort (too many side effects) and Cipro. I'm now trying the Maker's Diet as well as a bunch of vitamins and probiotics. Let's hope this helps a bit!
