Bruised anal sphincter, what should I do?

Surgery - Colorectal

In brief: Depends on

How the sphincter got bruised! if it was direct insertion trauma or due to constipation, you should be seen by a colon and rectal surgeon to diagnose and treat the problem. Warm tub soaks in plain water for 15-20 minutes can help in the short term until you can be seen by a doctor.
