I suffered a chronic persistant fissure for at least six months, on and off.....mostly on. The problem would temporarily go away, then return; despite visits to GP, creams with HC etc.
I recommend taking care with advice re eating fruit. To try to solve the problem, I used to have all-bran for breakfast & lunch always included an apple or pear.
I finally decided to ditch a daily apple, in an attempt to resolve the problem. The problem did seem to go away shortly afterwards (combined with cream with HC). I thought I was finally over the problem, having had no pain for several weeks.
I started to cut back on my daily all-bran. This seemed fine.
Recently I tried an apple on a Friday; I had a very painful weekend. This was too much of a coincidence.
For me personally, apples seem to be a real problem. I used to eat everything bar the stalk. Other acidic fruits don't appear to have been a problem, however I cannot say for sure. It might be best to avoid fruit with a high acid content.
