My experience with a chronic anal fissure
Posted 5 years ago , users are following. Firstly, my experience was horrible just like everyone else. I have read that it can be more painful than childbirth!
Anal Fissures are tears in the skin around the anus. They are usually caused by severe constipation, with passage of hard stool along with straining tears the skin. They can be very painful, usually described as sharp burning or tearing pain while having a bowel movement. The pain is primarily due to spasms in the nearby sphincter muscle. Most anal fissures will heal on their own with proper bowel management.
