Customer Question

Hello there
I had hemmoroids 2 weeks ago and have been taking hemmoroid cream and laxative (senna) since. The bleeding has stopped as I'm not straining but the constipation is still there with pellet stools covered in white mucous. I saw a colo-rectal surgeon 2 weeks ago and he diagnosed hemmoroids and checked and there was no obstruction in the rectum.
How do I improve the constipation without laxatives and how do I fully empty my bowel. Please can you let me know if I have colon cancer and what is the white mucous and why is the constipation not improving? The bleeding has stopped as I'm not straining.
Can you let me know if I have colon cancer? Should I be worried?
Thank-you
