Thumbs up It turns out i don't have a hemmerhoid

I just wanted to post that i went to the Dr. yesterday thinking i had a hem. that would not go away no matter what i did so he checked it and found i didn't have one after all, i had an anal fissure. He gave me cream and told me to take metemucil until it healed even though constipation isn't really a problem for me right now. Even after 24 hours it feels SO much better and i am not even bleeding anymore after a BM. I thought i would update in case someone else has this problem and assumes it is a hemmerhoid. GL to all with any problems you are having that they get resolved soon .

Re: It turns out i don't have a hemmerhoid

make sure you are drinking PLENTY of water and i would also suggest taking a couple stool softeners at bed time.

before i had surgery my fissure would get better and then i would always have a relapse and be back to square one again. metamucil and stool softeners was not enough to heal the fissure for me.

i ultimately had to have LIS surgery, which did fix the problem that i had been dealing with for over 2 years.
