I had an anal fissure in spring of last year. It did not heal its self. It was very painful. I went to 2 doctors. Then went for a colonscopy. Then an anoscope. Finally I had to have surgery. The colon/rectal doctor told me that once they become chronic they have a very hard time healing without surgery. The muscle goes into spasm and tears it more and more so it never heals. You need to go see a colon rectal doctor. He can give you a few creams that may work if not there is a quick surgery that can be done to fix things. Just go in!

I am going back and forthe trying to decide if I should have the surgery or not. I have been suffering with this for 3 months. I have tried about everything.  I have totally had to give up my active life style.  I can't sit for any length of time and some time not at all. I haven't read the most positive outcomes with surgery either. Any positive feedback you could give me. Really scared of this surgery!
