Started having problems with my stomach around may last year, I think it was my ibs flaring up for the first time in years. Around December last year I passed a stool which tore my anus, which I have since learned was an anal fissure.

This scared the hell out of me but it healed, althought I can still feel where the tear was. Since then I have developed what I can only describe as the muscle around the left side of my anus sticking out, as well as my anus feeling like it’s sewn shut. I have used creams etc and nothing has worked. The doctor took a look and couldn’t feel anything apparently. Does anyone know what this could be and is it something to worry about?

Yes I am no medical professional but it sounds like you have a basic anal fissure and it is not chronic level yet. You should immiediately see a gastroentrologist and see if they recommend the botox injection. It sounds like it could be a thrombosed hemmroid. If I were you I would go to the doctor and get it checked out. Try somee zinc oxide in the form of calmoseptine which has menthol to soothe the area down there as well. Calmoseptine can be bought at almost any local drugstore and can be bought online too.

Try squatting when going on the toilet instead of sitting. This is a much  helathier position and the poop sometimes will just slide out,  no pushing or straining involved. I would definately take a fiber supplement, specifically metamucil  is what I take evveryday,  in ordr to allow your stools to be soft and to allow them to pass thorugh easily. THis being said, with any fiber supplemetn, you must drink lots of water when using them, or they will not work veffectively. Also, do not take too much as too much fiber can irritate your bowels on the way  out and diarreah actually does worse down there. I would recommend getting a sphicteronomy surgery if htings dont get better. I waited it out, gave up, had the surgery, and was able to heal within about two weeks. I had a chronic fissure, so I knew where you are ocming from with v all the pain and discomfort.

Try listening to music to distract your mind a bit, especially when going to the bathroom. If you are in writing pain, distract yourself with a movie or TV show right after. Also, to prevent myself from screaming and from putting more stress in the area down  there, i bit down on a washcloth in order to make the tensions with my teeth instead of my sphicter muscle. Hey Shaunc95,sounds like you have anal tag,hypertrophied pappilae which is your body’s failed attempts to heal the fissure. IF its not painful,give it time it will be reabsorbed by the body.
