Hello, I am 29 year olds. Do not have health insurance, and poor. So I try to avoid going to the doctor unless it is very severe.
All my life, I have constipation. I admit this is due to my unhealthy eating pattern with lots of meat, and no vegetables. I have diagnosed with anal fissures before by family doctor. My bowel movement is like once every three day. And when I pass stool, I strain and push a lot, and it cause bleeding, and extreme anus pain.
Lately for the past one month, it is getting bad, very painful when passing stool, and I can feel it tearing, and saw bright red blood drops in the toilet bowl.
No other pain or discomfort when eating or digestion, so I am sure that my anal fissures is coming back to haunt me, lol. So my a few questions I want to ask. Can I just try a healthy diet and let the fissures heal? I know it will take weeks. If I don't get this treated, it is possible to died from loosing blood? Can anal fissures itself cause anemia?
Any input is greatly appreciated, and thank you for reading.View Thread
