Diagnosed Anal Fissure... other symptoms?
I had mild stomach pain and discomfort for over 2 weeks, so I went to our local hospital (no family doctor) and had blood work done (came back as normal/excellent), and a rectal exam, where they discovered a fissure. I was sent on my way, and told to take Metamucil without anything else.
The stomach pains continue 1.5 weeks later. There is a slight fluttering/gurgling sensation that was occurring just above the pubic line which has settled down, however on the right side of my stomach, just above the hip/below the ribs, there is a spot that feels like I have a knot there always. It's constant, and does cause mild pain off and on (however the sensation of feeling like there is something always there continues). Sometimes, I have a sharp pinching feeling in my side/around the back at the same elevation as the knot area. Is this related to the fissure, or a sign that perhaps something more sinister is at work? They had originally said they would contact me to have an ultrasound completed, but my concern is since they discovered the fissure they may just discount completing the ultrasound on the area.
