Yes Mary. I agree w the bulking of the stool to help w the stricture. So glad you replied. Do you bleed when dilating and how often do you do it? Does anyone get concerned about impact on sphincter muscles or nerve damage from repeat dilation? The day of and after a dilation I sonetimes experience leaks. It's very distressing. I have read that immodium tightens the muscles over lomotil.
Finally my fissures feel better as well. They are agonizingly painful when in full flare. I am adding more bulk with daily oatmeal as well.
