This is Dr. David
does he take aspirin or coumadin? these are blood thinners and can cause him more likely to bleed
if he is bleeding unusually, he needs to go see a doctor right away at the ER or VA hospital.
he shouldn't be bleeding like that.
you don't have to start a new question.
if he is not taking blood thinners, then he needs to go to the ER and get blood testing for coagulation, complete blood count and platelet levels to find out why he started to bleed.
has the bleeding stopped?
that other expert is not online now
that is good the bleeding has stopped.
only additional testing will tell if it was serious or not.
sometimes hemorrhoids can bleed from the rectum and make it look like it was from the testicle area.
can he get in to see a VA doctor?
