first: I know nothing about
fissures. I hope I never get fistula or fissures, it seems terrible to have them. I hope you'll get an advices that could help you.
But in general I have learned something about
I have a narrowed area and obstructional pain going on there every time I am careless with what kind of fibre I eat.
I have learned that the fibers are really important to us, so therefore I try not to avoid them, but I try to learn what kind of fibres I can tolerate, and it's quite a lot.
Since I have been learning the hard way, I feel sure what I can't have, I either avoid it or prepare and cook them so I am able to tolerate them. For instance: I love shallots (onion).
If I cut them in the food processor I cut them in nano pieces. The pieces are so small they are almost invisible. Because the bigger the pieces are, the more pain.
Other vegetables I of course cook to death. Mash them in the blender and get my fibres.
I can't tolerate bananas: I put riped banana slices in the freezer (I always buy riped because it's better for me), and use them by mixing them with yoghurt and berries later. Fantastic taste. The fibres from the bananas are not at all hard to the stomac or intestines after they have been frozen. The fibers seems to have changed character.
I use to experience like this with every fruit and vegetable. I know we need those, and it's better with cooked and soft than no vegetables, fruits and berries at all.We get the antioxydants from those, we lose those while not eating vegetables, fruits and berries.
