Have you seen a hematologist about your anemia? You may need to get an iron infusion to get you back on track.
Are you taking your pain medication on time? Call your doctor and tell him you are having problems managing your pain and can he adjust the dose or prescribed something that might be more effective.
It's a tough time but it will get a littler better every day!
It is possible to revise your DS. In the meantime, what are you eating and what supplements are you taking?

I've been thinking about you and wondering how you were doing. I'm glad the surgery is over with. Now you will heal and be over with that darn fissure!

I love watching your progress. You look wonderful! It is amazing to see one's own progress, isn't it? [edited to remove personal information]
I have always felt that getting the surgery was a trade off. Exchanging one set of medical issues for another. But, oh, how much better my quality of life is now! I don't regret it a bit.
Sounds like the paleo diet. Personally, I would say around 50 grams. However, at three months out, I would say that wouldn't be too difficult for you to do as most of your stomach space should be taken up by all the protein you need to eat. How much protein are you getting in every day?
The number one rule when I had surgery was "no sugar and no fruit". Also "fat is your friend". So, if you are getting in all your protein and are avoiding simple sugar and fruit like the plague... then you should do fine. Just eat your protein first and then fill in with veggies. If you want to reduce your carb intake even more, then limit your intake of grains, potatoes, carrots, peas and corn also.
