Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have recurrent anal fissures. When I consulted a doctor, he said the blood loss is very less. But, another doctor advised me to check for CBC. Is this a serious issue?


Welcome to icliniq.com. Even if the blood loss is minimal, it can still result in anemia, making it crucial to conduct a complete blood count (CBC). If anemia is detected, iron therapy will be necessary. To prevent fissure, adopting a soft diet with ample salad and roughage to avoid hard stools is essential. Additionally, ensure an adequate intake of fluids. Follow the prescribed medications from your doctor and incorporate regular sitz baths into your routine.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
