I have suffered with a chronic anal fissure for 3 years after an operation for hemmorhoid banding. I used all the topical ointments, had Botox, had tests to determine my anal resting pressure ( which is within the normal range) and finally an internal advancement flap to cover the fissure ( July 14) . The flap surgery caused another tear... Which has healed up... And so has the flap.
I am left with awful burning stabbing pain. I can't sit , I can't stand.... But feel better if I walk a bit. I am taking 300mg gabapentin x2 morning and evening which is only taking the edge off really.
I don't know who to turn to and what to try next. My colorectal consultant says it is now neuropathic pain.
