Stool Hard And Difficult To Pass And Accompanied By Blood?
5 days ago I finished surgery for fissures and hemorrhoids. Just today I did a chapter, but my chapter was hard and hard to come out. Then I bled again. Is bleeding a sign that my fissure wound is open again? Then how to get my chapter out? Even though I already eat fiber and fruit vegetables and drink lots of water … what should I do, fyi I’m also breastfeeding ..
Hello mom! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Patients who have had anal fissure and hemorrhoid surgery usually do not defecate immediately. Usually, this happens because the patient is unconsciously afraid to feel pain when defecating. In fact, delaying the urge to defecate can actually make the stool hard. When in the large intestine, water absorption occurs from the stool, so that the water content in the stool is reduced. If this process is left for a long time (the stool is not passed for a long time), the stool will become hard. Hard stools will be more difficult to pass and can injure the rectum. Bleeding and pain when defecating after surgery are normal experiences for patients. Until symptoms completely disappear, it usually takes 1-2 months after surgery. However, if the bleeding occurs quite a lot or happens continuously, you should go back to see the surgeon.
Eating fiber and drinking lots of water that you do is very appropriate and needs to be maintained. Also remember not to hold back the urge to defecate. Mothers should also do a lot of physical activity and avoid sitting too long. Take a walk every now and then when you feel like you've been sitting too long. Mothers can choose various physical activities that can be done at home, such as walking briskly. You can also cycle or swim occasionally. If you are still having trouble defecating every day, you should go back to the doctor who operated on you. The doctor will check the condition of the surgical wound and give medicine to make it easier to defecate. Don't forget to tell the doctor that you are breastfeeding so that the medicine you choose is one that doesn't affect breast milk. If the pain you feel is disturbing enough, you can take over-the-counter pain medications, such as paracetamol. Make sure the medicine you are taking is safe for you and your nursing baby.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
