Suffering from anal fissure with sentinel pile

i am 19 years old man. i have my problem early from my 15's. Now it is severe to me. i decided to go for a surgery. My problem is that i face severe pain when the stool discharges from my body. Some times it also bleeding. But bleeding is not regular to me as it last happens with me at 8 months before. Local doctor suggested that i have a polype growth & mucasse formed there inside the passage of stool. I need suggession.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi.
You already know the detailed diagnosis, which surely must have been told to you by a proper qualified person (a doctor)!
Here goes my assessment and suggestion:
You seem to be suffering from a chronic anal fissure. Any form of conservative (i.e. non-surgical) treatment is unlikely to work at this stage; and I am sure you must have tried all sorts of them by now.
At this stage, surgery seems to be the only option left for you. Lateral internal sphincterotomy (the name of the surgical procedure) is a 'minor' operation (even if the name is slightly lengthy!) with ~ 95% of success rate. The sentinel pile can also be excised easily at the same time.
Thanks.

Hello dear
conservative treatment treatment of anal fissure is for long duration approx 2months and even after completing treatment you will have to maintain your dietary habits in proper way. Also you should avoid stress as it is supposed to be one of the cause of anal fissure
wheather you should go for surgical or medical treatment depends upon factors like if medical treatment have failed ( it means if you have completed approx 4-6 weeks medical treatment and that has failed) or your condition is very severe
regarding polyp growth you should confirm from your doctor wheather it is inside anal canal or at anal margin

The mordern ALLOPHATIC system is failure these days in case of Anal fissure and piles mass. either you do surgery the chance of reoccurence is maximum...
These days Ayurvedic treatment of anorectal disease is popular and most successive in both acute and chronic case with common drugs in low degree and minor low invasive surgery called"Kshara sutra " in case of higher degree.

Constipation is the main cause for anal fissure. has doctor advised you any surgery ? i think you can go for diet change. hey avoid spicy and junk foods. take banana daily. drink more water. i think this can help you to reduce the pain while passing stools. i have heard of piles but not sentinel piles.

Hello, doctor. I had an anal fissure for about two weeks now, and I notice what people call a sentinel pile , or skin tag. I am taking hot showers every time in the morning, and I notice my condition is improving on a daily basis. Also, every time I feel the tag on the outside, I am trying to push it inside. The pharmacist has prescribed me procto glyvenol, but I found out that it is mainly for hemorroids, and what I am seiing, even though I have never suffered from hemorroids before, I see that the next day after I use the cream I get really bad hemorroids. When I don t use the cream, no hemorroids. My question is, do these tags get healed by themselves, if left alone? I already feel that my fissure is improving noticeably, even after two weeks, whereas before the pain was unbearable. I really don t want to look for surgery, I just want some reasurrance or advice to help it heal naturally. Thank you, Adrian

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

I am a 70 year old female. I have had IBS most of my life, but one year ago I began to be severely constipated and only having a bowel movement every seven days and only then because I have had to resort to using a laxative. I did add more fibre to my diet and am trying to drink more water. The only blood I have noticed seems to be on the outside of the stool, therefore, I think it s only because of the colon lining being irritated. I have abdominal pain everyday, which is sometimes generalized, but most recently the pain in my left lower quadrant has become quite intense. In the past month I started taking ClearLax , which is similar to Restoralax and have increased fibre and drinking more prune juice, hence, bowel movements are more frequent and softer. Having said that the pain still persists. I also experience what would seem like liver pain which seems to be in the entire liver area and is quite intense sometimes. An xray last year showed a fatty liver. I was referred to a general surgeon in Dec. 2013, and he did not examine me at the time, but booked me for a colonoscopy which I can t get an appt. for until June. He also has booked me for an MRI, but the wait time for that is extremely long, could be a year, if I m lucky. As another opinion, do you feel that this could possibly be something serious.

My father age 74 undergone heart bypass surgery in Godbole heart hospital thane on 2nd Jan 2011. He used to complain chest pains and gases in the night in the month of December and diagonised with heart blockages. After heart surgery he was discharged from hospital after successful operation and went to Andheri at my brother s place. At that time he had 101 fever and started having diarhea for so many times that he could not walk. He didnt want to have water or any food at that time. We admitted in Andheri hospital, and found that he is having infection with WBC went as much as 35K, Dr treated him with antibiotics and also dialysis since his urine output reduced due to dehydration. After 7 days his diarhea stopped, urine output increased and WBC count came to 10K. Again after 2 days he startted having diarhea with 100 fever, then dr consulted gastroentologist. He was of the opinion that this is due to antibiotic effect. Still my father had the diarhea and could not walk. So dr. Suggested colonoscopy. Blood culture, stool culture came negative. Just checking 1 what could be the reason of this? Anything related to operation? Infection? 2 He was very active before operation and sometimes had constipation 3 Will he be able bare colonoscopy and will it help
