Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing.

For your information, the direction of use of xyloproct suppository is that, one suppository is inserted into the rectum morning and evening, and as required after each bowel action. Up to 5 suppositories/day may be administered. You may need to push the suppository gently into your back passage with the pointed end first. It needs to go in about 1 inch. Sit or lie still for about 15 minutes. The suppository will melt inside your back passage. This is normal.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions .In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor for full examination with imaging studies.
