Customer Question

Hi I saw a different gastro Dr for hemorrhoid bleeding that was heavy one day last week, my Dr was not available . It's been less and less each day with use of pramcort. He said I can continue for 10 more days, if not better, he would refer me to colon rectal Dr. What is the next step. Also I did have a colonoscopy within the year and it was fine. He also examined me last week too. What procedure are considered? I basically have this type of flare up once every 9 months. Thank you.
