Is there more bleeding from anal fissure if you take aspirin?

Yes: Taking Aspirin affects platelet function which is part of the process involved in clotting of blood. Any open wound such as a fissure that bleeds on its own can be affected with increased or prolonged bleeing if taking aspirin. The fissure needs to heal, be operated on or cease the Aspirin until after healed. Check with your doctor before stopping any meds. ...Read more

My son has a chd and is on aspirin. He has an anal fissure. What should I do?

My son has a chd and is on aspirin. He has an anal fissure. What should I do?

Depends: I assume the fissure is bleeding. In any case, minor bleeding is a common, and very annoying, issue with children on aspirin. In the vast majority of cases, the bleeding will stop without special intervention. But, I would consider giving stool softeners to help make the bowel movements less "traumatic" for the fissure. Please discuss this with the pediatrician. ...Read more

How long does it take for a bleeding anal fissure to heal?

How long does it take for a bleeding anal fissure to heal?

Depends: If the fissure is acute and shallow, correction of an abnormal bowel issue will resolve it in 2-3 weeks. A chronic fissure may stop bleeding but may not heal without surgical correction. You need to be properly evaluated with a discussion of your diet, fluid intake, bowel pattern and confirming the diagnosis with followup to confirm actually healing even if the symptoms resolve. See a colorectal. ...Read more

I have an anal fissure with lots of pain and bleeding. What do I do

I have an anal fissure with lots of pain and bleeding. What do I do

C a doc: Not much u can at home except make sure ur not constipated. Sitz (soaking in water) also can help. U will need something to help relax the internal sphincter muscle as we do not have control over this and it goes into spasm when it hurts. This leads to not wanting to have bm and leads to constipation which makes the fissure hurt more. It's a bad cycle that needs to break with relaxation of muscle! ...Read more

Anal fissure--does bleeding come and go?

Maybe, but...: Bleeding per rectum may originate in the anal canal, the rectum, or further up the line. Frequent anal sources of bleeding include hemorrhoids & fissures, that may respond to modifying stool texture (fiber, softeners) and topical agents, or require further intervention. Similar bleeds can be seen with anal & rectal cancer, infections, ischemic colitis, diverticular bleeds, inflammatory bowel, etc. ...Read more

Would an anal fissure cause very heavy bleeding?

It may: The anal area is very vascular (many smallblood vessels) and a fissure certainly can be painful and cause bleeding. Bleeding from your anus is never normal, so you should get the area checked to assure it is a simple fissure versus some other problem that may be causing rectal bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
