Anal fissure: diltiazem and bum botox.

Finally I saw a colo-rectal surgeon about my fissure, which has been there for at least 3 years on and off. He gave me diltiazem ointment. It seems to have made things loads better in a couple of weeks. But I swear it loosens my bum so much that I keep needing to go. In the hour after I use it I go about 4-6 times. Can anyone relate?

And he's put me down for botox in my ring to relax it even more for it to heal. Any one had it? Did it work? Will the ointment alone do the trick? I had rectogesic but couldn't use it because of the headaches. If I stick to the regime on the diltiazem, might I get away without the botox? I really don't want the down time required with a GA and soreness after.
