I went to the lavatory and I had a bowel movement

Resolved Question:

Hi Dr. P

On Friday night. I went to the lavatory and I had a bowel movement. There was blood in the stool and water. That night I had diahrea until 4a.m. I discovered I had a Hemroid. Sat I did not have a bowel movement. The Hemroid subsided. I just had a bowel movement and there was blood. Can I wait to see my Primary Care Physician on Tues or should I go to the E.R. I am not in any pain. But I am scarred. Your advice is truly appreciated. MJ

Would like to also add some info about hemorrhoids..


Some things you can do to help hemorrhoids are:

  • Avoiding constipation
  • Do not postpone the urge to defecate
  • Eat a high fiber diet
  • Exercise
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Do not strain when defecating
  • Apply cold compresses to external hemorrhoids
  • Do not sit for long periods of time
  • Refrain from heavy lifting
  • Avoid spicy foods, nuts, coffee, and alcohol
