Your history sounds that your bowel movement may have either ruptured a hemorrhoid or caused an anal fissure. I recommend that you consult a general surgeon to evaluate you for this. It is likely that you may be seen soon this week in office The surgeon may be able to identify the problem by a simple in office procedure of anoscopy . This is a short lighted scope that may be inserted in the anus and short way into rectum. Lower sources of bleeding may be identified in this way. A general surgeon would be the specialist that most often deals with the problems of an anal fissure or hemorrhoid bleeding.
