Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Feeling of heaviness in anus after food can be due to Gastrocolic reflex. When we eat food, our body tries to create more space for food by increasing peristalsis. Thus old digested food can reach to anus giving a feeling of heaviness or urge to defecate. Amount of food and fat content of food can increase it.

You can get some relief by avoiding fats in food and taking food in small quantity. For relief you can try to evacuate it also.

If problem persists, you should consult a Gastroenterologist.

Thanks for your query.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

If you have further concerns in this regard, I would be happy to discuss those with you as well.

With good wishes,

Hi,

Welcome again,

You should take less quantity of food at a time and avoid fried food and mava sweets. Restrict consumption of tea to 2 cups a day. Prefer some curd with food. You can eat lookhi chapatis. Quantity of oil/ghee in subji should be minimum. Your diet should be fiber XXXXXXX Drink more water throughout the day. Spare time for morning and evening walk.

You can take T. Unienzyme twice daily just after your meal and T. Supradyn one daily with food. for a week.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

If you have further concerns in this regard, I would be happy to discuss those with you as well.

With good wishes,
