i have 2 fissures, one really deep and long. im in a lof of pain from them. im taking rowasa enemas and using proctofoam and have been on it for about 5 days now. has anyone used these and how long until you see some relief? im not sure what to do about the bleeding, does it take a long time to heal them? especially with D? they split open constantly, when i sit or go up stairs. im not straining or anything and im not eating anything fibrious so im wondering if theres anything else i can do. also, how in the world do these not get infected what with goes on down there? oh yeah im also using proctosol cream on the outside.
its bad enough that i have to wear a pad becasue i bleed in between BM's. sometimes i get the feeling like i have to use the bathroom but all that happens is blood comes out. has this happened to anyone?
i just had a cscope and it showed only mild CD inflammation and my GI does not think the beleeding is coming from anywhere else. my colo-rectal guy is the one treating me for the fissures.
just any info anyone has on all this would be helpful, anything at all.
thanks very much
