Question: Hello doctor......6 month back my wife got fissure.When we contacted doctor told its because of infection.He gave antibiotics and mucipet ointment My wife have completely recovered from that. But 2 month before my wife got again fissure and piles. Piles is in second degree .This time my wife was having mild itching and pain. Both the time he did VRS for examination.He told have to do IRC and LORD'S procedure.But now my wife dont have fissure and having mild irritation only somedays not all the days. My question is whether my wife have go through all these procedure? She is very much scared about operations. Is strict diet will solve the second degree piles? What is the percentage of re-occurance even after doing procedure?

Thanks for writing in

If the symptoms have settled you may go for management of constipation as of now and reconsider getting operated if the symptoms reoccur

Diet and fiber can help control constipation and in turn help control fissures

Second degree piles can be treated conservatively but you can not expect a permanent cure with medicines

Chances of reoccurance after IRC are around 20-22%

Hope this helps

Thanks for reply doctor...I am having fallow up question though...My wife never had constipation problem. She used to have semisolid stool and had fissures. Now she has only itching problem in that area. Is fissure and piles are inter-related? Means if fissure is not it correct to assume even piles is also not there. Or atleast for piles she has to go through procedure? Basically can we avoid operation for now?

Thanks for writing back again

Even if she has no constipation fiber will help her a lot

Itching can be because of fissure/Piles/worms/collitis and/or local skin condition

Piles and fissure can exist individually or in combination

As mentioned earlier you may avoid surgery now and wait for the response of treatment

Hope this clears your doubts

Hi doctor, I m a 28 year old, usually healthy female. I have a gynefix in situ, my period was due on Monday, i have only experienced spotting since then and am having some very strange (for me) experiences. I am so tired that I didn t get out of bed until 14:45 today. I did get up in the night projectile vomiting . I have been getting mild cramps , nausea and have been feeling light headed occassionally over the last few weeks. My bowel movements flip between diarrhoea and constipation . I keep getting achy and in work feeling like I m going to pass out. It feels as though there is something there when I lie on my side at night and for almost 2-3 months I have felt like something is stuck or caught when I bend down and stand up too quickly. I went to a walk in centre last month and was advised to go to the hospital incase it was an ectopic pregnancy . They kept me for 5 hours in A&E, did a blood test and said I should be refered by my GP to a gynaecologist , however, I haven t heard anything! My periods are usually heavy, last months was but this month it is just spotting so far. What would you recommend I do?

I have been constipated for a few days. My friends and I decided to go on a hiking trip. During the hike, I was okay, but after my stomach really was upset. My boyfriend gave me laxatives, and even though they worked for the constipation , my body started to ache and my head started hurting. I m taking a lot of fluids, but I m not eating much, since my stomach is still bubbly. What could I have and how can I get better?
