Anal stenosis means that the diameter of the anus and anal canal becomes smaller, and the anus is painful during defecation, and the stool is difficult to pass through, which is a thin strip. If the index finger cannot pass the anus smoothly, it is anal stenosis.
How to self-enlarge anal stenosis?
1. Anal expander
Anal expanders can be purchased in hospitals or pharmacies, and some hospitals are self-made anal expanders. Observe their quality and safety, and insist on using anal expanders every day. The advantage of using anal expander is that it is convenient and clean.
2. Finger expansion
You can use your family’s help or your own efforts to wrap your index finger with clean sterile gloves and apply petroleum jelly and other lubricants (for anal stenosis caused by trauma, such as anal fissures or hemorrhoids, you can apply the corresponding horse Yinglong Hemorrhoid ointment and other corresponding ointments are used as lubricants), gently insert about 4cm into the anus, twice a day, about 3 minutes each time, after slowly adapting, use two fingers again until the anus can pass the index finger smoothly to end the anus expansion.
Due to the different physiological structure, men can expand the anus forward and backward, and women can expand the anus forward and backward.
3. Posture assistance
This is a posture assistance method. The knees are bent on the bed, the body is lying on the bed, and the hips are raised, which is good for stretching the sphincter and helping to expand the anus.
Note: Dilatation of the anus is suitable for stage 1-2 anal fissures, without complications such as sentinel hemorrhoids, anal papillary hypertrophy and subcutaneous fistula. People with severe stenosis should undergo surgery.
There are many reasons for the formation of anal stenosis, mainly divided into congenital and acquired
1. Congenital anal deformities
2. Anus and anal canal inflammation
Scarring due to chronic inflammation or ulcer adhesion, leading to atrophy. It is a common cause.
3. Local damage
The anus is scarred by trauma such as childbirth tears, scalds, and burns; drug stimulation; hemorrhoid surgery; anal fistula surgery and scars, resulting in anal stenosis.
4. Anal tumors
The clinical manifestations of anal stenosis are determined by its clinical characteristics.
So, how do we judge anal stenosis in life?
1. Thin strips of stool
Due to the influence of the structure, the diameter of the anus becomes narrow, and the stool is squeezed by the anal canal when the stool is discharged, resulting in the phenomenon of thinning of the stool. Frequent sense of defecation.
2. Difficulty defecation
The anal sphincter loses its elasticity and cannot push the stool flexibly, causing difficulty in defecation. It is also accompanied by pain, dull pain or tingling, and the pain is strong and lasting. At the same time, the muscles cannot fix feces and secretions, and there will be anal incontinence
The friction of the stool or the inflammation and ulceration of the affected area can cause blood in the stool. The discharge from the ulcer can cause anal itching or anal eczema.
