Hello, Anal fissures are cracks or tears in the anus and anal canal. They may be acute or chronic. Avoiding "sharp" foods that may not be well-digested (i.e., nuts, popcorn, chips) Increase liquid intake, and, at times, take stool softeners , Sitz baths all these helps you to postpone surgery . But surgery is the mainstay.
