which foods to eat with a fissure

hi everyone, was wanting to know do you follow a certain diet with a fissure. I have not pushed for 5 months since my fissure. I followed the fissure diet for 3 weeks at beginning and slowly added different foods. The only things i did not eat are popcorn, chips and peanuts. I started eating more and was getting occassional hard stools but not pushing. I was getting the burning bum and slight pain in buttock and down leg. I though it was gone but dr. said yesterday its still there but small and healing under a skin tag. I'm going back to fissure diet but was wondering can i still add some foods each day but don't over do it. how do you keep your stools soft.

I would think that a lot more fiber would help. fiber one bars or something like that. Other than that I really can't say because my fissures don't seem to bother me and I wasn't told to go on a special diet. Glad to hear it's healing. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

My daughter just went to the doctor for a fissure. She is currently on a low fiber diet for a stricture related to her Crohn's so she can't increase fiber. The doctor told her to buy the stool softener called Colace at Walmart or the drug store. She doesn't have diarrhea much in relation to her Crohn's so that may be why a stool softener is appropriate for her. She bought the 50 mg Colace and has taken it for few days now and things have improved. She thinks she may use 100 mg. Maybe Colace would work for you also. In terms of the burning, have you tried Calmoseptine? It really helps.

thanks. I am taking metamucil once daily and am scared to try anything else. I've seen it mentioned here so many times the calmoseptine and haven't gotten it yet. I remember when younger my mom would put something on my mosquito bites that sounded like that and was pink. rain-you say they don't bother you, do you eat anything like meat and popcorn. I know some foods make stool hard.

Matty, the pink stuff was probably calamine lotion - basically zinc oxide and iron oxide. My mother - and I'm talking a long while ago - used it for all sorts of complaints: mosquito and other insect bites, the chicken pox, any skin rashes, sunburn...
