Anal fissures & Piles are not exactly a topic for cocktail party conversation, and the reluctance to discuss them often leaves sufferers thinking they are the only ones affected. In fact, this potentially painful, debilitating, anxiety-provoking condition is quite common.
“Every bowel movement was painful with bleeding, and the agonizing after-spasms went on for hours,”. “Even when I wasn’t in actual pain, it was all I could think about. My work suffered; my life was on hold.” This is every piles & fissure patients story!
If you’ve ever noticed bright red blood after a bowel movement, chances are it is a small tear in the rim of the anus called as aFISSURE. Such tears are commonly mistaken for hemorrhoids, which unlike fissures don’t cause pain with bowel movements. In an estimated 90 percent of cases, these tears heal on their own. If they don’t then they can be treated within a day with Leonardo Laser that has been recently introduced by Healing Hands Clinic, Pune.
Hemorrhoids( PILES ) are veins in the rectum that have become swollen and painful. Sometimes they go away by themselves, but in other cases they cause lingering pain, heaviness, itching, and bleeding which can be cured with medicines and in severe stages causes an irreducible prolapse which will require surgical intervention ( Laser for initial stages & Stapler Surgery for severe stages ).
Similarly,Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome ( SRUS ) is a rare and poorly understood disorder that occurs in people with chronic constipation. This can cause rectal bleeding and straining during bowel movements. Treatments for solitary rectal ulcer syndrome range from changing your diet and fluid intake to surgery.
Colitis also presents with bleeding in stools. It is inflammation of the inner lining of the colon. It may cause abdominal pain and diarrhea with or without blood. Fever may be present. The treatment of colitis depends upon the cause.Initial therapy, regardless of the cause is to stabilize the patient’s vital signs and helping control pain, if needed.
To conclude, anorectal bleeding should not be ignored and must be checked immediately on priority from a Proctosurgeon or Colorectal Surgeon.
