Tabitha....you're probably meaning fistulas? not fissures.
RichardUK....great to hear you're having much improvement. It's a slow process. Anyone can get fissures...they're a tear in the anal folds and usually happen from wiping often or from multiple bms.
The tissue around the anus gets mighty irritated from multiple bms and wiping.
Prepping for a c-scope will definitely tear
open a fissure...I would say it's more from that than from the scope itself.
I would suggest you call your doctor and ask for a prescript
ion for protocedyl or something like that which used on the fissure will definitely help heal it. If you're uncomfortable with your scope in 5 weeks, call to make it a date a few weeks later.....although 5 weeks is a long time to heal.
Hope you feel better soon.
