Please put your questions now
Doctor :  
I shall answer you
User :   i am concerned as my sphincter is not closing up
Doctor :  
Yes, it is far loosened and cannot be reduced without surgery
User :   permanent?
Doctor :  
Yes
User :   oh ok :(
Doctor :  
But you should stop the habit of putting things inside the anus
Doctor :  
for it not to destroy further
User :   does it not matter anymore
Doctor :  
can you repeat the question again
Doctor :  
I am sorry I did not understand
User :   can i continue to do it, as it is already destroyed?
User :   what further damage could i cause, given i have gone this far
Doctor :  
Yes but there should be an end to it
Doctor :  
If you get the surgery done then again if you continue on the habit
User :   why?
Doctor :  
there is no use of the surgery
User :   maybe i should not do surgery
Doctor :  
It is your preference
Doctor :  
If you have no other problems continuing with the current habit
Doctor :  
then you may continue on it
Doctor :  
If you prefer to continue the same, putting your general health aside, it is your own decision
User :   my health is fine
Doctor :   good to hear that
User :   i sent you some more pics to your email
Doctor :   I suggest you to get a general complete health examination once an year

User :   should i do it more regularly?
Doctor :  
Atleast once an year
Doctor :   apart from that see the doctor if you have any other trouble in your health
User :   should i inform the doctor of my practice or will they be able to tell?
Doctor :  
You have to inform the doctor
Doctor :  
The rectal examination is not a part of the general examination
Doctor :  
If you say it first time, they shall note it down and keep checking as a routine exam from then on
Doctor :  
and warn you if they see anything improper
User :   will i have to push prolapse out?
Doctor :  
Do you mean push the prolapse in?
User :   no push it out, to show the doctor
Doctor :  
you can pull out and push in, is it not?
User :   correct
Doctor :   You can do it for a better visualisation
User :   you have seen it, will it freak them out?
Doctor :  
I have and it will not as Doctors accept any person as they are
Doctor :  
to treat them
User :   ok
User :   did you get my pics?
Doctor :  
Yes
User :   what u think?
Doctor :  
I just can say that you should not get into troubles with your health by continuing them
Doctor :  
and I hope so
Doctor :  
Is there anything else I can help you with?

You take care of yourself
