Hello,
9 months ago I had an anal fissure surgery. Unfortunately, it took all this time to for the wound to close. A month ago it got finally completely closed however, the scar is hurting a lot. I can feel tissue (not that much but I can clearly feel it with my finger) around the scar. The pain has been the same for the last 4 months or so, meaning, the pain was not related to the open wound but to the tissue, which has been formed along all these months.

What are my options? I would very much appreciate if you could comment extensively. My doctor says the pain could stay there forever, which is highly discouraging. Thank you.

          Welcome to the Chronic Pain forum littleorange!

              Sorry you are struggling with this type of pain! Did you ask you're Dr what options you had, if any? I realize he said you may always have this pain, but did he offer a solution for you?

    If nothing can be done, then I would think pain med's of some sort would be the only solution. It would be a hassle, but maybe a numbing cream of some type?

      Many of us have had surgeries, and wind up with some sort of painful scar tissue. I experience this from my own lumbar surgery, and is in the groin area. (not fun)...Taking pain med's for my FBS (Failed Back Surgery) helps with this.

      Hopefully someone else can suggest a better direction for you. You might want to check out the "Ostomies" forum, and visit with those members over there. I'm willing to bet they deal with this sort of problem as well.

      Good luck, and do visit us often!

I wonder if physical therapy would help? I know that ultrasound can be used to break down and soften scar tissue, so it might be a possibility. A silicon based scar tissue cream might also help to "flatten" the scar, so it's less irritating.

I wish I had more answers for you...I hope you're able to find some solutions that help.

Welcome to the HW boards by the way!

Thank you very much Pam. Yes, I found out about the ultra sound method but none of my doctors has mentioned the possibility.

In the other hand, please forgive me if I expose a total different health issue, I'm just looking for the best options for me.

I've had a chalazion on my right upper eyelid for a year or so. Also I get small sties all the time. I've visited many doctors and followed treatments but nothing has really worked out. Is there any condition to which I've should be looking at? Something related to healing/scarring/skin conditions that I haven't heard about?

Many of my problems are related to my skin, yet I have never had this many problems as now.

Once again sorry for asking for something completely out of topic, I would appreciate your comments.

Thank you!

        littleorange, you might want to take a peek at this site. It looks like there is quite a bit of information on it.

           http://www.emedicinehealth.com/chalazion_lump_in_eyelid/article_em.htm

       Might want to view this one also...some great information on it as well.

    http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=29&m=770035

       You can also do a search here on the forum....just click the search button in the upper righthand corner of this page. It is a great feature to use and is very helpful, when little is known about a persons condition.

    Enjoy!
