My problems started right after I was treated for H.Pylori with two antibiotics (amoxicillin and clarithromycin). I started to experience frequent hard, pebble-like stools with occasional bursts of diarrhea and streaks of blood on tissue paper. Before the treatment, I had diarrhea for about
two years and the GP I was seeing at that time blamed everything on IBS did not do any tests for possible bacterial infection.
So, after my H.Pylori treatment, I started to experience hard stools with a lot of straining during bowel movements. After few weeks I developed this acute pain in my anus that would not stop. I went to see a gastroenterologist who did my colonoscopy and endoscopy exams. He told me that he did not find anything and the random biopsy samples that he took did not show anything as well. However, I still have campy stomach, hard stools with clear and sometimes white mucous, and acute pain inside my anal
I saw a CRS doctor about
5 weeks ago about
my pain and she told me that I have multiple small fissures right inside my anal
opening with a number of hypertrophied anal papillae. The fissures are not in regular 6 o'clock and 12 o'clock places but rather, as my CRS doctor said, in unusual spots (she is not sure why). She prescribed NTG ointment with hydro-cortisone which is somewhat helping but not much.
My question is: why do i have those multiple fissures? Could it be because of IBS? Does it sound like IBS?
I get bouts of gas with yellow stools and cramps in my lower belly. When gas stops I get hard, brown pebble-looking stool which is really hard to evacuate.
