Several years ago I was diagnosed with a weak muscle in my rectum/anus. This gives me a problem. Can anything be done to fix the weak muscle?

Weak anal sphincter: This depends on a couple of things. Where the weakness is secondary to disruption of the muscle (number one cause prior 4th degree episiotomy repair) or whether it is due to a pudendal nerve weakness (the nerve that innervates the muscle). The general answer of treatment options is divided between the two causes. A colon ; rectal surgeon can evaluate for you. ...Read more

How can I treat a tear in my rectum? It's not bleeding. I feel something tearing everytime I go. Stool is soft. I have weak pelvic floor.

Daughter-16-had large stool stuck in rectum. It passed. Since then, bladder spasms, hard to start pee, weak streams, no uti. Saw Urologist. Any ideas?

Constipation: Some say constipation is mother of many a disease! Certainly urinary symptoms due to chronic constipation are notorious. Unfortunately, there are no easy fixes without proper diagnosis and proper understanding by the patient and in cases of younger ones like your daughter, their immediate caregivers. Her doctor should cleanse her colon with laxatives and follow up in 2-3 wks for any need for ref. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of an internal prolapse? How can it be identified? I see the inner rectum when straining, is it an internal prolapse?

Sudden very sharp pain in rectum when "pushing" to use the toilet. Could this be proctagia fulgax? Could this possibly be a symptom of cancer?

Anal fissure: Could be an anal fissure or a hemorrhoid. Try some hemorrhoidal cream around the anus or try some hydrocortisone suppositories but you will need a doctors order for that. Add colaxe to your diet 100 Mg tab two to three times a day. Oral mineral oil works as well with one tablespoon with every meal. If you are worried about it see you general medicine doc and they can help. ...Read more

Used an anal plug 2 days ago. Haven't had symptoms but today my rectum has been a little sore. I have gone #2 fine many time no blood. Rectal perf?

Sore is not perf....: Rectal Perforation is not 'sore'. It is emergent, life threatening and bloody. So, if you are otherwise just a bit sore you have not perforated your anus.

Another common scenario with anal sexual play is the chance of tearing the lining of the colon or rectum. This is a fissure and is also not a perforation. ...Read more

How long can you be without symptoms with a perforated rectum. I did some anal play 5 days ago and have a very sore rectum and I'm just worried.

I have night sweats and blur vision I am due for an op in jan for a prolapse rectum and uterus are the symptoms linked in any way?

I have night sweats and blur vision I am due for an op in jan for a prolapse rectum and uterus are the symptoms linked in any way?

No: The chances of you having a prolapsed rectum at age 26 is very small. The chances of it causing blurry vision and night sweats are less. I would be slow to have surgery for those symptoms and might suggest a second opinion if you have been told the surgery is going to cure those symptoms. I would be quick to ask about recurrence of the prolapse prior to having surgery for the uterus. ...Read more

Out of say 24 character strengths, one person would have one set of top strengths and another person would have different strengths ranked highest. No one can be strong in every area. "weakness" generally reflects a lack of experience. ...Read more
