Hi. 4 weeks ago I had asteroid epidural in my back due to a disintegrated disc. This made me constipated and I had no bowel movement for about 5 days. When I eventually went it felt like it tore my anus and I bled a bit. Now every time I go to the toilet I bleed and it also feels like glass is coming out, it's really painful. Afterwards it stings and aches for about 10-15minutes. I have a small lump also or lumps which are sore. It can be itchy too. Quite embarrassed to go to my doctor so thought I would seek your advice.
