Anal fissures---D.r Stoll-anyone? HELP

Posted by Cindy [783.10] on March 03, 2005 at 19:33:01:

Hi,I am a very healthy active 43 yr old female witha history of rectal bleeding for about 15 years.I have seen so many drs' I have lost count.I have tried all the conventional medicines and surguries you can imagine.I have 2 surgeries this year>the last one being July 04,had a fissurectomy,LIS and several hems removed.I do everything they say-exercise daily,drink gallons of water,use fiber supplements,etc.I recently had one month of no pain or bleeding and then the demon returned meaner than ever for no reason.I have lost faith in traditional medical therapies.(I have even worked in this profession for 20 years).I called my surgeon this week,he calles out suppositories and proctofoam! It only makes things worse.PLEASE,PLEASE tell me how much mineral oil I should consume? I have tried to search the archives but I am doing something wrong..Plus,I worry that I must have cancer if I am not betetr by now.I had a barium enema,sigmoidoscopy,proctoscope and anascope.they all just show fissures.My dr said he sent some tissue to path it was fine.Has anyone heard of anybody else with a problem like this for so long?Thank you

Hi Cindy,

You never mentioned stopping all bread and white flour products to prevent constipation and increasing UNREFINED UNGROUNG GRAINS to replace the carbs and provide the fiber that you need.

Did any doc ever prescribe an antibiotic and an a topical nitroglycerine ointment to help the healing process?

Here is a link you should read

Hi, Cindy.

Listen to Ron.

The way to figure out the MO dosage for you is listed in the stool witholding article on the home page.

I have not seen a problem like this (in 40 years) that did not resolve in a month if the person just followed this process to allow the delicate tissues of the anus to stop being ripped apart just from stooling. With YOUR history I would continue the correct dosage for you for a year to prevent recurrance.

Let us know what you learn and how you do.

Walt

Cindy,

I too have had a anal Fissure - it was quite large and was quite destructive to my rectal area. I also have suffered from several fistula's as well. I am also a survivor of Hemmoroids/Surgery - for all mentioned - I have had - 11 operations to date. I have only had (TG) One Fissure. I have not had any complications - or surguries since 2000.

I would like to offer some simple advise that I have found has helped me.

First and Foremost - I do believe that we are subjects of our own Diseases/Disorders by the way we manage or conquer our personal Stress. I believe that Stress is an Invader and litterally attacks us - from the inside. We do not however realize the damage until we see it on the outside of our body - as a Physical abcess, bleeding etc.. Which means something has manifested to the point -OUR body is saying - I am offering you a 911 Distress Call - Houston We have a Problem. (NOW the body needs Medical Attention)
And it seems to me that the Digestive system along with the nervous system seems to be the First HIT when Stress is prolonged and becomes a living normal. We cannot incorporate Angry/Hurtful/Chronic Stress - as our "normal". The Human body cannot - tell the difference between Stress and Disease - it eats, destroys and damages live tissues.

I have found that When you Feel AWFUL all the Time - Your Awful - becomes your Normal. You could offer your "Normal" to Jane/Joe Healthy and they would be screaming for a DOC.
When you have become so pain managed with your bodies disfunction - You dont know when to cry Help. Until its unfortunately - at a stage where it needs critical attention.

I have found that letting things go - truly help.
My other sugguestion - which is simple and requires no medications - in relation to anal/rectal health.

Within your bathroom keep a small step stool - about a foot high. When your on the comode - put your Feet on the step - so your knees are aligned with your hips. This takes the pressure off of the rectum as your body releases toxins.
It is a simple task - they may offer you some relief.

I hope that I have helped.
Bix
