Unhappy Rectal Fissure

Hi all. I have read all the messages about your surgeries. This scares me a bit being I am heading in that direction. I have been having severe pain and bleeding with each stool movement. I am only 26 years old and have had severe constipation since I was a newborn. I have tried it all but nothing works for me. I have even went to the extent of being on a liquid diet or all fiber diet. Nothing works and I am so wore out from this. I went in and had a colonoscopy the middle of May 2006 and the doc said that I have an anal fissure. He tried Anusol suppositories and cream plus some other meds to try and heal it. Being I am always constipated, it just continues to irritate it and rip it further. I have an appointment this Friday to talk about surgery. I am scared but anything would be better then the pain that I go through on an daily basis. I can do nothing to make it better. Laying does not help nor does sitting (the worst) standing or any other position. When I am forced to sit on my butt I actually sit on my hip or lean to my side. That is barely tolerable at that. If there is any advice on how to manage the pain that I am in til the surgery please feel free to let me know. I would be most greatful to all of you. Thank again- Becky

Arrow Re: Rectal Fissure


For a person to have normal BMs they need to intake 25 to 35 grams of fiber daily. It needs to be a combination of soluble and isoluble fiber.

Soluble fiber is the type that bulks up your stool and insoluble fiber causes muscle contractions so the digested food is moved through your intestines.

I hope you know the differences between these fiber and the foods that make up each type.

You also need to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water daily along with a moderate amount of exercise!!

Has any Doctor diagnosed the reason for your constpation for so long?
