I have had an anal fissure for several months. It goes away and comes back. Is there a permanent fix that my doctor is not doing that I should ask about? Currently, it is 4-5 week treatment with an oinment that has nitroglicerine in it. Suppose to shrink the tissue and bring blood to the area. I do hot baths etc.. but I keep having them.
To make this situation worst.. is that I am a gay man and occasionally have anal sex. Needless to say, I would like to be able to enjoy sex with my partner more regularly, but the fissure causes lots of pain /issues. As soon as it heals and I think its good.. it becomes a problem again. Should I ask for surgery? Would that solve the problem? Is there a way to make your anus more compatible to flexibility?
If you continue having anal sex with the fissure do not expect it to heal ever and if you have anal sex too offte over 5 times a month it can lead to serous damage also if you have anal hardcore may also lead to long-
