Much better already, thanks! I got magnesium supplements and have been taking that, and i also upped my vit C dosage and am cutting back on my AM coffee. All of those things seem to be helping. It's still really painful if i sit in the car for too long, but luckily that doesn't happen much at all. And BMs aren't feeling like Labor Part 2 any more, so that's a plus! Hopefully this means the fissure is healing and any internal hemmorrhoids are calming down.
I'm so glad that your visit with the specialist went so well. Are you all healed up now?
I'm off to chug some more water
