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, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
