Hello,

I will suggest you to continue autrin as it has nothing to do with your constipation. You need to monitor your blood loss source as if it is because of this fissure related bleeding? You need to take fecal softeners as there is a compulsion for blood thinners post angioplasty (your fissure bleeds more as compared to others). If problem persists, it is recommended to do anal dilatation to relive this constipation and anal fissure.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammad Faisal Bacha, Internal Medicine Specialist
