So, I have an anal fissure and it is a serious pain in the butt. Anyone else had this issue? And do you think it has anything to do with losing weight?
It started a few weeks ago and when it didn't go away, I went to the doctor and got hydrocortisone suppositories and advice to eat lots of fiber and drink lots of water. I did all that I was supposed to but as soon as I stopped the suppositories and stool softener, it came back.
I'm kind of puzzled because I've already been doing getting lots of fiber and water and haven't really had any constipation issues, so I don't know why I'm getting this...
Anyway, the first time around, I tried to stay on a low cal diet and continue exercising while taking care of it and looking back, I just think I was nuts to keep all that up through the pain!
So this time around, I'm taking a maintenance break and just focusing on increasing my fiber and water intake. Also cutting back on exercise. This is sooo frustrating because I was excited about starting to lift heavy this week.
Needless to say, with the advil, metamucil, etc. my weight has been all over the place.
Just wanted to rant and ask if anyone has had any experiences with this?
