anal fissure &amp  skin tag
I have an anal fissure with a large skin tag that is extremely painful. I have been using Nifedipine with remicaine gel but it doesnt seem to be helping to heal it. I have also been diagnosed with a posterior hernia. I do use stool softners like duphalac dry to help with the constipation but I have to rock back and forth to have a bowel movement at times even though the stool is soft. Would an operation to fix the hernia eventually help to get rid of the fissure in the long run?

You should consult a surgeon about this.
