Manage your bowels: banding could be applied only to internal hemorrhoids and that could be done in the office by local anesthesia anal fissure is not connected to hemorrhoid it is a tear in the lining so it will go away and come back off and on keep your bowel regular avoid constipation and straining drink more fluid eat more fruits and increase you fiber intake Hope this helps! thank you for using health tap
