Hello Bracken. Poor you - everyone on here knows what it's like to feel so desperate. The pain is like nothing else too. I've not had mucus, just blood so I can't really advise. Have you been to a doctor?

Bracken -


Sorry you had to find this forum...but good you did. Sounds like you are in the thick of things right now. First off -- go see a CRS as soon as you can to get checked out and at the very least to have a consult with a Dr.

As for blood -- that is a pretty normal result of a fissure. The mucus less so....that is what I would want more info on. You should search the word mucus between FAQ and Portal at the top and see what others are saying.

As for the fissure -- you should get yourself some fissure cream, start drinking lots of water (8 glasses a day), use a warm sitz bath or regular bath after each BM, reduce processed foods and eat a healthy amount of soluble and insoluble fibre.

Get looked at....and all the best,
