I have a drain currently and 2 fissures.  It feels like the string is getting caught inside the fissure.  The pain that I feel is incredible!

Happened to me. It is very painful. The Dr. gave me a cream to use-Diltiazem and it made it feel better and it closed it. It is a heart cream and I think it makes the blood flow to the area so it will heal better. Sitz bath help too and I would rub Rosebud Salve on the fissure to make it feel better.
I was able to move my drain so it wouldn't pull agst. the fissure too badly.

History of rectal abscesses and fistulas (28 surgeries including abscess I & D, exploratory surgeries, 2 C-ton drains and 1 fistula plug) Count does not include self bursting abscesses.
1st Remicade infusion 6/5/07.  Lots of joint pain, and a new fistula since the 2nd infusion 6/19.
Praying I'll get better soon so we can have a baby.
