But what is anal fissure?
An anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the lower rectum (anal canal) that causes pain during bowel movements .
Anal fissures don’t lead to more serious problems.
Most anal fissures heal with home treatment after a few days or weeks. These are called short-term (acute) anal fissures. If you have an anal fissure that hasn’t healed after 8 to 12 weeks, it is considered a long-term (chronic) fissure. A chronic fissure may need medical treatment.
- You pass a large stool.
- You are constipated and try to pass a hard stool.
- You have repeated diarrhea.
- You give birth. (Childbirth can cause trauma to the anal canal.)
I promise you, you don’t want to experience anal fissure. The pain from it could make you mad.
On such occasions taking opiod pain relief could not even conceal the pain completely.
It was a hellish kind of pain and it came about, because I tried forcing a dry poo through even though I knew the constipation was a chronic one.
Because I tried straining, I ended up tearing my anus and now I am battling with constipation and a terrible anal pain that has promised to make me loose my mind.
In other for you not to experience the madness. When next you discover that you are constipated start applying these natural stool softeners while making sure that you don’t sit too long in the toilet and also try not to force your anus to push out shit.
