Great write up on the physiology of fissures

Postby efr97 » 18 Jul 2016, 10:18

Found this article on fissures by a proctologist, very informative and interesting.

http://www.davidrosenfeldmd.com/brochures/fissure-in-ano/

Interestingly, he says that large soft stools are better than watery ones, because they stretch the sphincter muscles, causing them to relax and increase blood flow. What are your experiences with this?

I read this website too . I agree with part of it. If it's too bulky it can hurt too. Formed, soft and small quantity with complete voiding is best. I think both soluble and insoluble fiber are important but the balance should likely tilt much more soluble to make it soft rather than bulky and formed.
Sigh. It's a tough balance.
