Fissures and Crohn's

Hello everyone,

I was diagnosed Crohn's disease in June this year. However, my biggest nightmare is anal fissures that i'm suffering since 2 years. I tried nitroglycerin creams and botox injections which gave me 2 months of relief. According to my doctor surgery is out of consideration since it may cause fistulas. Do you have any other suggestions for the treatment?

Hi Gurakan, Welcome to the forum!

Sorry to hear of the problems you have been having. I had surgery for a fissure and fistula in January this year. The fistula was layed open and the fissure was removed. It has so far been successful and I have had no issues with it since.

If your surgeon thinks it is too risky to go ahead with surgery, I would definitely want to avoid risk of fistula at all costs as they are nasty things!

I am unsure what other treatments options there are for fissures. Hopefully someone else who has more knowledge will come along and help you.
