Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you have any rectal pain?

Also the blood --is it mixed with your stool?

Soft or hard stool?

Did you have any colonoscopy?

Inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's or Ulcerative colitis need to be ruled out.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I don't have rectal pain, blood not mixed with my poop, I would bleed after I finish poop like when I retract my rectal back in from pushing. I only have the pain from having poop in my stomach
Doctor: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Ok --this can be due to the internal hemorrhoid related commonly.

Besides high fiber diet you need to take stool softeners like Miralax daily to regulate your bowel movement.

Colonoscopy is still recommended to check for any inflammatory bowel disease, rectal lesions.

Irritable bowel syndrome constipation predominant will be likely diagnosis if colonoscopy is normal.

Newer medication called Linactolide daily can be considered to resolve your constipation problem besides miralax.

Best wishes

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
