My daughter who is 26 years old and lives in the UK has been experiencing a great deal of pain passing stools. She is often constipated and has never been a lover of fruit or vegetables, she also only eats white bread. When she went to her local doctor she was told she has piles as well as a fissure. The doctor advised her to change her diet and drink more water, an operation seems to be the last resort. Is there a fast way to ease the pain and do you have any suggestions?
Many thanks

Lellie, she can get suppositories used for the treatment of haemorrhoids. It will work for the haemorrhoids and the anal fissure. She should also up her water intake to 2 litres a day and substitute her sugar with honey. If that doesn’t make her stools soft enough, she can try using lactulose every night. Good luck.
