Anal Fissure

A few days back after defecation I felt pain near anus which lasted for around 1 hour, I went to see my GP and post examination, he told me its a very small Anal Fissure and prescribed be smuth ointment and told me to take soft and hi-fibre diet and don't strain bowel movements. Since then I am taking care of my diet, consuming good amount of fruits and around 4-5 litres of water daily. Apart from little pain around and in anal region (very less as compared to pain I experienced before going to doctor); I have little back pain and frequent urination around 9-10 times a day. Is this normal?

Hi there I understand your concern... It may be due to urinary tract infection....Urinary tract infections can be painful, but you can take steps to ease your discomfort until antibiotics treat the infection.....Drink plenty of water. Water helps to dilute your urine and flush out bacteria....Avoid drinks that may irritate your bladder.... Avoid coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks containing citrus juices or caffeine until your infection has cleared. They can irritate your bladder and tend to aggravate your frequent or urgent need to urinate....if no improvements Consult nearest physician they will help you further..

You had appropriate treatment for Anal Fissure. Frequent urination is not a symptom which is associated with Anal fissure. This is a symptom suggestive of infection. Consult Physician, you may require Urine analysis.
