I am suffering by fissure and anus swelling and tried all but no cure what to do?

Treatment of fissure depends upon stage and associated conditions. Acute fissures can be treated by medications, but once chronic, it would require some surgical intervention. Though medications (oral and topical application) can give temporary local relief but wouldn't cure the problem

I had tubectomy done with last c-section after second c-section I had severe abdominal pain few times doctor said it's hernia pain (umbilical hernia) and I have tummy which is like a pregnant women. Since last 1 year I didn't get that abdominal pain but my stomach/ Tommy is same. How can I treat my hernia and reduce my Tummy? Pls help. Another question is after tubectomy and from past one year period cycle has changed to 25- 27 days from 30 days. Because of this less period time am feeling weak getting back pain and other body pains before and after periods. Please help me to know the reason and treatment for the same. Thanks in advance.

Hi, For your tummy first get checked with a surgeon whether you have hernia, umbilical or incisional .If there is a hernia requiring surgery get it done. Meanwhile you have to learn abdominal core muscle strengthening exercises and start doing it which you have to do after the surgery also if you undergo one. Otherwise with exercise alone you can see whether your tummy is going in. But please check with a doctor what is it you are suffering from. RegRding your cycle it is absolutely normal and your tiredness ,back pain are due to other things like taking care of children. Also back pain may be due to your bulging tummy which can alter the curvature of your back and giving pain. E er isle is the best remedy for everything.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You back pain may not be linked to your abdominal issues, now you have also mentioned that you have got your usg done twice which were normal. I would advise you to consult a gastroenterologist or a gastro surgeon so that your abdominal issues can be sorted out. Please come back to me once your abdominal issues are sorted out because they are a priority. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
