Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi there- How long has this gone on? Do you gt abdominal pain ever?
Is the blood mixed with stool or in the bowl water?
What is your regular stool pattern?
How often do you go, and is stool hard ever?
I'll give you time to catch up!
not mixed in stool. it is a some little stripsof blood in a stool. sometimes i feel abonominal pain when stooling but not all times
Do you have constipation or hard stools?
Any other medical problems/medications?
sometimes. when i have hard stools blood comes. I have used stoolsofteners to avoid it
What you are describing could very well be from a hemmorhoid
Do you feel any bumps near your anus?
The possibilities can be a lot of things, but common things are common- so-
If you have constipation and strain at times, you can easily have developed a hemmorhoid, on the inside or outside of rectum (which you may not feel)
so if i have hemmorhoid, what can i do?
the other possibility is if you have a bigger harder stool, you can cause a small sin tear which will bleed near the anus
how do you heal a skin tear?
I don't think anything else ominous is goingon, but of course, you are best covered if some can look at your rectum- look for hemmorhoids and tears etc.
The key would be to keep stool soft and regular so you don't strain a lot.
I recommend Colace 100mg 2 in AM, and Senna 8.6 mg 2 in PM
Most skin tears (fissures they are called) heal on their own
Would i take stool softeners for more than a month?
For treatment of both tear and hemmorhoid possibility, Preperation H Topical cream will make both better
If the hemmorhoid is on the inside, though, you need to put suppositoriesin
Ideally, only to control this initially, but regulating your stool by increasing fiber more will be the key to stopping meds
So , yep, fruit, but you also can get Metamucl tabs or wafers
More veggies, read fiber content of everything and pick higher fiber foods (grain bread, cereals, etc)
Of course drink 8 glasses + of water a day
i will embark on grains
And- if it continues, or bleeding increase- you MUST be seen
I can't be certain you don't have a bleeding polyp in your colon, or something else higher up
ok lt me try the advice and if it countinues i will see a doctor
Most docs will treat you as above, and see if bleeding resolves
If not, the they should do a colonoscopy to look inside
My hunch is , this is all related to hard stools, you agree?
Just to make sure- No colon cancer in family?
And- you don't drink alcohol in excess?
Just being safe
yeah this is because of hard stools only, when i have soft stolls i have no problems. I GAVE NO HISTORY OF FAMILY CANCER. I NEVER DRINK.
Do you have any other questions for me?
NO, THANKS FOR YOUR INFORMATIONS, DO THE MEDS YOU MENTIONED ABOVE NEED RESCRIPTION OR THEY CAN BE GOTTEN OVER THE COUNTER
good....so you are low risk for any bad problems
all are over the counter
OK THANKS VERY MUCH
Any problems, feel free to come back to this question to ask me....
You are very welcome- and no worries- this is VERY common
If you can, please respond with positive feedback for me, I would appreciate it!!!!!!!!
sure i will. bye bye
Have a good day!
