I was diagnosed with a second-degree internal hemorrhoid and "fecal smearing" back in june. I have been dealing with anal leakage for two years now. The colorectal surgeon did not want to remove it. He said to make "lifestyle changes." I am trying my best to excersise and eat healthy on a regular basis (although the holidays have been a challenge). I am taking a probiotic now and have cut out coffee from my diet (I drink tea). It doesn't seem like I am making too much progress. Any suggestions?
