So I've been dealing with hemmorhoids for over 4 years now and recently been getting anal fissures.
in the last year I've had THD which was honestly the worst decision ever as I feel as though it made my problem worse and more consistant ie pain etc...
with that I still developed another internal hemmohoid and got it banded. the doc told me to just live my life which I did...but ended it up not healing.
last month I saw a new general surgeon and with just general inspection she noticed a anal fissure but 6 weeks prior to that she say nothing...which is frustrating.
just some background...I'm a avid fitness freak and a gay male that has anal sex. not sure if they relate as from August to January I did not have no anal sex and the pain and burning were still there.
so with this anal fissure the doc advised to continue doing sitz bath to which I was religious twice daily for months and oreavibes a dialiatizem cream. it's now going on week 3 and have some relief but not totally healed.
I drink plenty of fluids...my diet is great...dont really pass hard stools...maybe here and there with a heavy meal and red meats ...stopped or limited wiping after bms. seemed to help the inflammation and burning.
my I still always feel something is there....and I'm getting very frustrated. I'm waiting for a coleateroal surgeon consult...
am I doing anything wrong?
should I stop working? should I stop eating so much protein??
thank you for your insights
