Throbbing from "REAR END"

Posted , 4 users are following.

This is a weird phenomenon that has only just become noticible

I was on the toilet, yesterday and had a particularly large and fairly hard poo - this eventually cleared .

Then, later on in the day - I noticed a weird sensation of throbbing from my nether regions

I googled it and discovered that I may have damaged my rear passageway - but it didn't say "Go to your doctor" - it just said that "most" tears repair themselves"

It doesn't hurt - just throbs a little !

What should I do

I have put some anticeptic cream up there already

    I have had bowel problems for 10 years and am on Loperamide for this

    There is no blood present

      Loperamide is used to control diarrhhea. Perhaps you are using too much of it.

      That's because I suffer from diahorrea (IBS like symptoms) and I only take 1 per day on prescription for last 10 years - when I reduce this - my diahorrea returns.

    You may have a fissure from the hard stool. Use the antiseptic cream for a week and if no better after this or your symptoms get worse, see your doctor

      By "fissure" - you mean "tear" don't you ?

      This sounds pretty bad - where will the poo go - if it escapes through the tear ?

      Yes, a fissure means tear and it is can happen if your stool is hard to pass. Antiseptic cream will help to soothe, heal and prevent infection. I haven't heard of the stool escaping through the tear. If you are worried about this scenario, I would ask your doctor about that to get an accurate answer. For the moment, keep using the cream and try a stool softener if you regularly strain to pass stools.

    dear steve,

    all had one of those,but normally only lasts for a short period.

    I have had a similar experience(see blog).

    It has now gone,but it took about six weeks to go,plus antibiotics.

    hope this helps.

    regards, Richard
