There are a variety of treatments for anal fissures. When a 32-year woman in Hyderabad with moderate constipation noticed slight bleeding & painful stools for weeks, she resigned self-care options & contacted a specialist. She wanted to know if fissure treatment surgery was the only way left for her. She was also eager to know if fissure treatment surgery healing would complicate her pregnancy which she was planning a few months away.
Fissure Treatment Surgery is Not the Only Option
Surgery for anal fissures is not the only option. There are several more conservative treatments which a patient should try first. After all, you have fissure treatment surgery which you always go for repairing the fissure. Although labor & childbirth can potentially pose additional risks, pregnancy should not be an issue, to begin with.
What are Anal Fissures
Anal fissures are small tears in the skin lining the anus. Most fissures often result from straining due to constipation while passing stools. This typically causes pain & bleeding due to hard stools during bowel movements. However, most anal fissures are found to heal within weeks when you address constipation & take steps to soften stools.
Adding More Fiber to Diet is Sensible
Ensure that you add fiber to diet in order to soften your stools. Stools will pass more easily because fiber helps in softening stools & will thereby normalize bowel movements. Normally, we need 25-30 grams of fiber every day. Nuts, vegetables, fruits & whole grains are good sources of fiber in the diet. Otherwise, you can also talk to the doctor about using fiber supplements.
Other Ways of Overcoming Constipation
It would be sensible to drink plenty of fluids & exercise daily apart from the increased fiber in the diet. Adequate intake of fluid is extremely helpful in preventing constipation. Regular exercise can help you in healing the anal fissure since it will increase flow throughout the body. Regular bowel movements are also promoted due to exercise. However, do not strain during bowel movements. This can add to pressure & reopen anal fissures which had begun to heal. Additional pressure is also found to create a new tear.
Try Medical Prescriptions for Anal Fissures
There are several prescription medications which are available & useful for treating anal fissures. Medication creams are also there to help relieve discomfort as fissures heal. Topical medications also are found to relax muscles & widen blood vessels so as to provide an increased flow of blood to the anal fissure. This will, in turn, promote healing alongside reducing pressure in anal sphincter & decreasing pain.
Fissure Treatment Surgery for Anal Fissures
Persisting anal fissures which do not heal require fissure treatment surgery. Fissure treatment surgery typically involves cutting a small portion of the anal sphincter muscle in order to reduce pain & spasms for promoting healing. However, pregnancy following fissure treatment surgery does not pose any complications. However, be aware that fissure treatment surgery partially involves dividing the internal anal sphincter muscle. Further trauma, which you may experience to the muscle during labor or childbirth, like tearing or episiotomy, can potentially cause more damage to anal sphincter & lead to fecal incontinence as well.
