Most probably you have bleeding piles (hemorrhoids). I hope you not loosing weight and have not lost your appetite for food. You must avoid constipation. Take plenty of water, fruits and fibre rich diet. Additional fibre like isabigole shall be helpful. Avoid spices, junk food. And non -veg. In case you don't find any relief please consult a surgeon.

What precautions should I take if I have gallstones? Should I go for gallbladder removal or wait till the condition become troublesome?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, cause of gallstones is our unhealthy diet, sludge in liver, follow proper diet only eat when required. No food should be taken after 7 pm in evening will help in avoiding further formation of stones and sludge. The safest and way that should be used to remove gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones. Now about removing stones it can be removed naturally, no need to worry about that.

While moving stools I have severe pain in the anal. I feel that the first part of the stool is little bit dry and thereafter it moves smooth. During in the initial movement only i feel pain just like tearing with our nails.

You are probably having an anal fissure. Stop straining while passing stools. Stop eating wheat and maida based food. Cut down oil and spices in your food. Stop eating cooked food in the night and eat only fruits like bananas, grapes, pomogranate, figs and guava in the night time. Drink tender coconut water three times a day. Perform deep breathing exercises, avoid junk food and include diet with high fiber content like banana pith, green leaves, watery vegetables like turnip, radish etc. Avoid tea, coffee,biscuits and bread strictly.
