Yeah once the impaction was gone the fissure healed up in 3 weeks and I didn't have leakages anymore. It's terrible how one little thing can do so much damage mentally and physically.
-Are you able to smell it on yourself btw? Or do you have family or friends who can smell it on you?
It hasn't gotten sweaty at all since, so I think sweat and fissure may be connected. Especially if the sweat happens when it's not hot outside or you don't sweat anywhere else on your body when it happens.
-For that I used MoviPrep - they use it for colonoscopies. It did take 2 full days to get everything out though so you can't leave the house at all for 2 days if you take it.
-no most of them were broken up, hard, and flat. I think hard stool in itself means it's old and soft stool is newer? If you have both soft and hard stools it might mean an impaction? Sometimes mine were both in the same movement.
It's really a shame how doctors don't treat leaky gas / odor seriously. It seems most of them think it's in our heads, or they don't care enough to share with us possible causes. After we leave they don't bother to think about it again, but they'll happily continue to collect our money .
We're left having to trial and error for months to find out what the problem is ourselves, let alone how to fix it. It sucks and it's so expensive. We shouldn't have to live like this.
