Well, I ended up having surgery on August 23rd. It was pretty painless, nothing near what I expected. I took percocet for two days then couldn't stand how it was making me feel, so I quit. The pain is tolerable so no more pills. The surgeon said that the skin tags he removed may have been making my problem worse, as one was pulling on the fissure, not allowing it to heal. I hope that he is right! I have a follow up appointment on September 9th and I'm hoping that things are healed enough for me to start doing some kind of exercise, even if it's only walking. I have been able to keep my weight from going up during this mess, but I feel like such a slug. Sitting around is pretty much over rated!
