fit4ever- I feel your pain, I had a fissure a few months back and the pain is definately excruciating! I describe it as pooping out glass, it's horrible. I tried just about everything, including nitroglycerine. The only thing that I found that actually worked for me is a product called "FissureHeal". It is sort of expensive ($34 for 12 suppositories), but I was desperate to end the pain. I was petrified to go to the bathroom! Not promising it will work for ya, but as I know the desperation to find something, thought i would let you know what worked for me. Check it out. If you do use them, you can break the suppository into thirds to make them last longer (they are really long). Hope you find something that works!
