But, before we begin, let me first introduce myself. My name is Tina M. Bryant and, like you, I used to have an anal fissure.
I can still remember the first time I noticed blood in the toilet. It really scared me, as I'm sure you can imagine. Blood coming from the anus is not a good sign – you don't have to be a doctor to know that.
So yes, I was afraid, but I was also too embarrassed to go to the doctor. I didn't know what the rectal exam looks like, but I was pretty sure that it's not a pleasurable experience. In the end, as my bleeding didn't stop and going to the toilet became more and more painful, I finally went.
So, here I was, getting a rectal exam. I, who was always so self-conscious about my body, had to undress and lay down on the table to be inspected from behind. And to make things even worse – I was examined by a male doctor. Don't get me wrong; he was very professional about it, but I still found the whole experience pretty humiliating.
Anyway, my doctor told me that I have an anal fissure. That basically means that the skin in my anus (the so called anoderm) got injured. He also told me that this is a common condition and that I have nothing to fear, as it almost never develops into something more serious (as you will see, that wasn't exactly right).
You can imagine how relieved I was to hear that. Thank god, it's nothing serious. So, I went home and applied the medication he gave me (it was an anesthetic cream, called Xylocaine). It only took a couple of days before my fissure healed. Until the next time, that is…
The cream worked, but not for long – after just 2 months, the fissure returned. I went back to the doctor, had another exam, got more medications and I was cured again – this time it lasted for about 3 weeks…
From then on, I've had anal fissure on and off for about 2 years, until it finally developed into a permanent condition (this is called a chronic anal fissure).
Needless to say, I've tried every possible medication, yet nothing seemed to work. The pain was ever present. It was tolerable in the beginning of the day (during the night the fissure healed a little), but when I, hmmm, went to the toilet, it tore again.
Even just sitting became extremely painful. And as my work demands that I sit behind my desk all day, you can imagine how debilitating my condition was.
Then, my doctor proposed surgery. He told me that it is very effective and permanently heals almost 90% of all fissures. Well, that came as a surprise and it got me really mad. Why didn't he tell me about this a couple of years ago? Was all my pain and suffering unnecessary?
It turned out that there is a downside to surgery. There are possible side effects and they are very unpleasant. Let me explain.
In some cases, the side-effects are very mild. For example, a person is unable to control the passing of gas. In more severe cases, however, people experience the so called ‘passive soiling' – soft stool or small pellets of stool just leak out without the person realizing what's happening and without being able to control it.
Well, I didn't like the sound of that! I don't want to wear a diaper for the rest of my life. Ok, I know, only 10% of patients suffer from long-term complications (about 45% experience this for just a couple of weeks after the surgery), but for me, the risk was just too great.
You can understand that I was a little taken aback at this information. Sure, I was experiencing a significant amount of pain at the time, but the idea of not being able to hold it in… Well, there had to be another way.
So, I've decided to do some research on my own. I've read a bunch of books about the gastrointestinal conditions. I've searched for the latest studies on the treatment of anal fissure and related problems (and believe me, these studies are not an easy read). Now, the first thing I discovered was that…
There are a lot of medications that are used for treating anal fissure. You doctor will probably start you off with an anesthetic cream, some kind of lubricant or a laxative. If that doesn't work, he might try something like topical steroids, nitroglycerin cream, calcium channel blockers or botulinum toxin (Botox)…
*If you want to know more about different kinds of treatment available, I've described them here.
So, why would someone even consider an alternative treatment, let alone surgery, when there are all these different kinds of medications available?
Well, all the medications for anal fissure share a common problem – they aren't effective in the long run. The reason for this is simple – these medications don't do anything about the causes of your fissure. So yes, they might help you cure your current fissure, but they do nothing to prevent it from reoccurring.
And that's not even the worst thing. In fact, every time, you have a fissure, the tear becomes a little deeper. It is more and more difficult to heal and in the end it stops healing completely. From then on, you have to suffer from pain and bleeding each and every day. That's what happened to me.
I know how you're feeling right now. I've gone through all of this before. If medications don't work and surgery has all those unwanted side-effects, what is there to do? Is there a way to cure your fissure once and for all?
The answer is yes, and you can do it without medications or surgery. First, you will need to discover why you've developed a fissure in the first place. Then, by eliminating these causes, you will enable it to heal properly, and also ensure that it doesn't develop ever again.
The fact is that all people experience injuries to the anal canal from time to time. But, most people don't develop a fissure. So, why are you different? What is making you more prone to having anal fissures?
I have been asking myself the same questions you are facing now. And finding the answers was anything but easy. Not only did it take me a lot of time and effort, but I quite literally, had to turn myself into a human guinea pig in order to get the necessary knowledge.
But I did it! I've finally managed to cure my fissure. And not just for a month or two – I am now completely pain-free and blood-free for more than 3 years.
As I've said, the right information is hard to come by. Because of that and because I know that there are a lot of people, suffering from this condition, I've decided to gather all my knowledge and put it into a book.
I was especially careful to make it as easy-to-understand as possible, as I know that most people who need this knowledge don't have a medical degree. This book is now called The Anal Fissure Report.
Here's just a couple of e-mails I've received:
I've had anal fissure continuously for 3 years. I was having pain every day. Now, I've been without it for about 2 and a half months; I don't know if that means that it's healed, but I sure hope so.
Karl Hagen, Frankfurt
…I was just too embarrassed to talk to anyone about my condition, but after reading your report, I gathered the courage, clenched my teeth and went to the doctor. She decided to do the anoscopy and it was exactly as you've described it…
Marie Nelson, Springfield, IL
I developed a fissure when I gave birth to my son Jason, 9 weeks ago. After following the suggestions from your book, my fissure has completely healed. Thanks for your help.
...I really learned a lot from your book and I just wanted to say thank you. You know, all my doctor ever did was prescribe me anesthetics...
Nina M., Italy
As a homosexual I wasn't sure if I could ever get rid of a fissure. I knew exactly what was causing it, but I wasn't willing to do anything about it (I'm sure you know what I mean). Your book really has come as a blessing. It gave me a much needed insight into my condition and helped me get my love-life back on the track. Thanks for helping. I'm going to return the favor by recommending this book to others.
Before I finish, I would just like to say one more thing - I firmly stand behind my report. That is why I am willing to give you a 100% money–back guarantee. This means that if you are not completely satisfied with The Anal Fissure Report, no matter what the reason is, you have a whole two months to return it and I will give you all of your money back. No hassle, no questions asked and no hard feelings. So, you really have nothing to loose.
