That was a lot of blood

Postby Bloodybum » 24 Mar 2019, 09:24

Hi,
I've had an anal fissure for a couple weeks now. At first it wasn't too bad and I thought it was a hemorrhoid, and during that time I didn't treat it well at all- straining a bit during movements & using prep H with the vasoconstrictors.

Finally it got so bad I couldn't do a BM at all for several days. I strained a lot during that time. It started bleeding, and I went to the doc. They said I had an AF and gave me the calcium channel blocker cream and said to do the baths & miralax. That was about a week ago, and it got things moving again, but I'm still concerned about the amount of blood I'm seeing. Most BM's have a small amount- does that mean it's not healing? I started eating a little less to try and give the bum a little easier time, and the last two days no blood. But then this morning I had a very small BM with a LOT of blood. It wasn't just a streak or something, it was like a shark attack at the bottom of the bowl. This seems out of the ordinary and has me freaked out. Anyone experience anything like that? Should I go back to doc?

Thanks,
Mr. Bloody Bum.

It’s always really scary to see lots of blood. It could actually still be hemorrhoids, along with the fissure.
I would ask your dr to refer you to a colorectal surgeon who will be able to have a proper look and give you a plan for treatment. Try not to worry in the mean time x
