Hi

I had the rectal pains in the anus after passing stool. This is what i did after months of suffering. I tried loads of different stuff to sort it out but eventually settled on a little pill called Dulcolax to try and soften my stools thus limiting the amount of stretching during stool. The theory being that it is your anus that should shape the stool and not your stool that should shape your anus. I started taking the tablets 2 at a time before bedtime and then 1 in the morning just to keep me ticking over during the day. Be sure to be near a toilet at work the next day because as soon as you feel a slight cramping around your hip area then you are gonna blow. It didnt work straight away but you must keep it going. It took about 3 weeks to a month and i am at the point where i take 1 tablet a day to keep my stools soft. Do try it because it has worked for me and therefore should for other people. Good luck and let me know if it worked for you. I am posting this as there seems to be a lot of fellow sufferers.
