I was diagnosed with Anal Fissure about an year ago. I had a lot of pain while passing stool. My doctor suggested surgery. Right before my surgery, I found out that I was pregnant, so I had to cancel the surgery. I started taking fiber and laxatives to keep the stool soft. 3 months later, it seemed that the fissure had healed on it's own. After my delivery, the fissure surfaced again and this time the stools were marked with blood and accompanied with severe pain. I am breastfeeding and surgery is the only option again. I am not keen on getting the surgery done because of it's side effects. I have started doing Sitz bath twice a day and also taking fiber regularly. I came across homeopathy having some remedies to help healing of the fissure. I read about some case studies and it seems that Nitric Acid is used in such cases. Since I am breastfeeding my child, I want to know if Nitric Acid or any other homeopathic medicines prescribed by doctor would be harmless for my baby or not. I also read about Vitamin E suppository's to promote healing. I checked with the pediatrician and she thinks that will not be a good idea since I am breastfeeding. Kindly advise.
