User :   would a sprained ankle last over a month? i thought that was it and hoped it to go away but it hasnt and only hurts during using the restroom....no the only pain while passing stools is the right ankle and lower right leg area.. i have sever itching in the anus area sometimes
Doctor :   You said blood in tissue
User :   yes when i wipe theres red/pink blood
Doctor :   It could be due to anal fissure
Doctor :   so my advise would be get an xray done in ankle joint and also get examined by a general surgeon for bleeding in ano
User :   ok but what is diclo gel application And hot fomentation
Doctor :   And also have less meat and start having plenty vegetables fruits and high fibre diet
Doctor :   So that makes the stool softer and bulkier not causing damage to anal muscles
Doctor :   Yes for the sprain that will do
Doctor :   Did you follow me?
User :   what is diclo gel? is it for sale at a store like XXX
Doctor :   Its an OTC
Doctor :   DICLOFENAC a Pain killer
Doctor :   Available in any drug store without prescription
Doctor :   If you have an crape bandage you can wrap aroung the ankle tight so that reduces stress on the region
Doctor :   Tightness to the extent permitting one finger with difficulty
User :   ok so you dont think the pain in my lower right leg when i use the restroom could be something serious? i just wonder cause i have never felt a sprain ankle for a month or longer
Doctor :   I cant conclude anything as its longterm issue
Doctor :   Will require Xray to confirm
Doctor :   i am suggesting timely remedy
User :   ok
Doctor :   Unless i examine cant jump to conclusions
