Answer

Prescribe stool softeners and fiber supplementation after the surgery, and recommend fiber supplementation indefinitely to prevent future problems with constipation. Follow-up care usually consists of a single postoperative visit to ensure that the wound is healing appropriately and that the fissure has resolved.
