ppg asks:

I eat a fibre-rich diet with fruit, and drink lots of plain water. Every so often I become constipated and the effort involved of passing small motions brings about haemorrhoids and sometimes bleeding. After a few days of this, all is well again, but it may strike again all of a sudden. I take psyllium husks daily, so would appreciate your suggestions! Thanks




Dr. Adams responds:


Hello,

It sounds like you have external hemorrhoids. You certainly are doing many correct things with your diet and supplements. All of these efforts have been proven to prevent and or lessen the effect of hemorrhoids. However, it is possible that it still might not be enough.

Make sure that you are not straining on the toilet when having a BM. Also, make sure you are not sitting on the toilet for too long.

Another common cause of hemorrhoids is liver disease.....cirrhosis, alcohol abuse, etc.....Do you fit into this category? Liver disease will cause blood to back up into many veins of the body, and some of these veins are the rectal veins........and this leads to hemorrhoids.

Finally, have you visited a doctor for a rectal exam? You may need an interventional procedure such as band ligation or even surgery. So I certainly recommend that you pay a visit to your physician for an examination.

My nephew really appreciates people like you Anonymous. He has recently graduated from undertaker's school and needs some customers. Going to doctors is a waste of time and is only for sissies. Right? If you're dying it's best not to know about it.

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on!

I have the same problem but I'm embarrassed to tell my doctor or scared of what I may find out.

I went the bathroom after my belly cramped up. I sat on the toilet and when I tried to go the toilet filled with blood. What can cause this?

Dear AC, We are more qualified for making fun of your condition than for giving advice but non-medical advice that may help;

Diet..Lots of Water and fiber.

Cleanliness..Paper is good but always finish
with a warm washcloth with mild soap, always!

Try anointing a Tuck's suppository with hydrocortisone and stick one up your ass morning, night, and after bowel movements.

If you have a sedentary job remember to wink your asshole every few minutes.

Hope this helps. I have known several people who had hemorrhoids surgically removed and in almost all cases they came back.

I got the above information from a chiropractor, of all people, many years ago and it practically eliminated what had been a problem for me for many years.

Please let me know what medical treatments for hemorrhoids work, giving specific details from case histories. I am talking about surgery, the rubber band procedure, or anything else that can be performed only by a doctor.How long does the benefit last?, and what are the side effects, if any, of the various cures?

Chili, for god's sakes, this article is seven years old. Why would you still offer advice?

Anon, it is not possible to shit a kidney. The kidneys are located in your abdominal cavity outside of the digestive tract.

I don't know what you could have passed, unless you are a female. Then I might think that you gave premature birth. This happened to my mother-in-law when she was younger right on the toilet in their house. She spontaneously aborted a three to four month old fetus.

Today I dropped a deuce that had alot of blood involved. There was an alien loookin object in the toilet and it looked like a kidney. I got very light headed from the extreme blood loss and may have even passed out at some point during the deuce. Is it possible to shit a kidney or was this just a hemmy?

No time to mess around, get medical care before it becomes serious.

Yes, hemorrhoids sometimes pop and bleed. In a way they can be pooped out, but not like you think. They don't leave, they just hang their heads out of your poop hole and it feels like they get bigger and bigger. They don't do anything but hurt like hell for a day or two, then crawl back inside when they finally quit swelling...unless, they pop and bleed. That's no fun. Been there, done that. Get thee to a doctor and figuratively spill your guts to said doctor. Tell them exactly what you are going through. That needs to be checked.

Hello, Im 16 and since about a week I have noticed blood on my tissue after I've wiped from doing a number 2. I dont think it has anything to do with a tear or so because it doesnt hurt and it comes out quite easily, however I am concerned I might have a more serious issue? Do you have any advice?

Dear AC: We on this forum don't know what's wrong with you, either, though we can all hazard guesses. The person most likely to know is your doctor; get over there pronto and let him diagnose and treat you. Always having "a ton of blood" with your bowel movement is not good, and you are very unlikely to be able to cure it by yourself. See the doc.

I don't get any sleep now basically when I do I wake up and my stomach hurts again and I go to the toilet and it starts again. I use a cream called Anusol but it does nothing, is there anything I can do? I drink lots of water and eat fruit but I'm so fed up now.

Amazing how many people come here for medical advice. If you're bleeding out of any orifice, go to the doctor. Otherwise, post something funny. This is a humor site, you know.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Well i have being having this problem but it has been on and off, I have been seeing small droplets of blood on the toilet sheet as i wipe, max 3 normally 2.

in the beginning i thought it was because of spicy foods but i noticed it would still happen even eating spicy foods, and i am left clueless

i am in my late teens, i have had work blood work done I am in perfect health, nor am i obese

from what i see it doesnt really seem like an emergency but i cant help myself wanting to ask.

If you drink every day, as I somehow suspect you do, it would be hard to tell. Why not stop drinking for a few days and see what happens?

Hey, if your doctor continuously tells you nothing is wrong and it is "just" a hemorrhoids the seek a second opinion, don't be stupid! Bend over and moon as many doctors as you need to so you can get a correct diagnosis and get it dealt with. Doctors are human beings too, so some care and some don't or some are just simply crappy doctors (or have let their egos get the better of them).

Wow, there are too many people who apparently can't type very well. Anyways, it sounds like everyone on here has hemorrhoids! Pay attention to all the comments already posted and see if they sound familiar.

Nope, your good, CF, it was a pigeon that crawled into your pie hole while you were sleeping. As far as suggestions, maybe a mini screen for your yap so you don't have any recurrences. Or maybe mount a stuffed owl on your chin, supposed to scare those flying rats away.

AC, bleeding off and on for 20 years! That might be a vagina not an asshole you have back there.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I have had bleeding hems for 20 years and have continually searched for a remedy... to no avail. However I have found there are some things you can do that will help. 1. eat a bowl of old fashioned oatmeal every day. (not the instant kind) 2. drinking cayenne liquid concentrate, diluted in a glass of water, has done wonders for this problem... and believe me I have tried everything.

At one time I was having blood on my stools, nothing major, just a red line down the side of the turds. Of course, I was not anxious to go to the doctor about it, but it kept up for a few days, and I made up my mind to go. My doctor then was a woman, so I was exceptionally sensitive to showing my bottom to her. However, the experience was totally benign. I had already told the intake clerk what I was having bloody b.m.'s, and she simply wrote it down without turning a hair. The doctor looked at the notation and said, "Let's have a look." I gingerly dropped trou and she checked me thoroughly, then said, "You have a very small fissure at about 10 o'clock on the anal wall; that's all I see; no hemorrhoids. I'll give you some medicine for the fissure, and it should go away in a couple of days. You probably had a really hard b.m. a few days ago, and it tore that little spot." I asked her whether she saw a lot of butts, and she said, "You have no idea. I see them every day." Of course, I did as directed, and the problem went away. I may still have the rest of that medicine somewhere.

Anal bleeding can be a very scar ordeal. Hemmeroids are almost always the cause for anal bleeding. Regardless, getting a colonoscopy done is not a big deal. You take some laxatives the night before, get knocked out by the doctor and wake up not remembering much if anything at all.

Diet is the number one cause for anal bleeding. If you wipe too hard or strain too much you will develop hemmeroids. To see dripping blood is a good thing, because this indicates that the bleeding is coming from a source right next to the anus and not deeper down where cancer could be lurking. If you are passing blood on the fecal matter or passing blood as diarhea you must seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY!

i started doing this diet, taking pills and etc. and then around the 4th day where i had to take 6 tablets a day of pills it made my stomach on fire and i took a poop then blood came out wit the poop! then the next morning i took a pop then i didn't see anything.. then a day later i ate some spicy food then i took a pop with blood again... i'm so scared...

I went through somthing very similar. I know that going to the doctors and saying "can you have a look at my asshole?" my not be the most appealing thing to do, but it is definitely the smartest.

I could not go to the bathroom it hurt so bad and I assumed a hemorrhoid. Turns out I had an anal fissure, and while the doctor couldn't do much about it, sure was nice to know.

Here is some info on fissures:
They cause inching, and moistness around the hole.
Terrible pain while trying to have a BM.
You can some times see them if you squat over a mirror and spread your cheeks.
They can also be identified by a skin tag ( a tiny flap of skin that forms just overtop of the fissure)
Will obviously cause small amounts of bleeding ( I never filled a bowl with blood)

Fissures are a pain to heal, as it is hard to heal a cut that stretches open and has poo pass over it every single day.

But I personally came up with a way to heal my fissure based on other peoples experiences.

If you are able to identify that you have a fissure (make sure you do) here is what worked for me..

#1 Stool softeners ( I was taking about 800mg a day)
#2 You have to squat! say good bye to the old method. This will help more than anything else, even if you only have hemorrhoids and not a fissure. I used an old ice-cream bucket filled half way with water. Squat over that, have your BM, then pour it into the toilet and flush. Just try it for 2 weeks, it makes it so much easier and less painful when taking a shit.
#3 Tinactin. Sounds crazy I know! Try placing a small amount of Tinactin just inside your hole. It might burn at first but it will get rid of any iching and seems to really help with the healing.

I went from being constipated for a week, missing a week of work and suffering from malnutrion with a massive fissure. To being fissure free in about a weeks time. Not saying it will work for you guys, but it sure as hell is worth a try!

Today when i went to the bathroom i had blood in it, i was wondering what can cause this. I am not sexual active *there* so what can it be from.

Hemmorhoids would be a decent diagnosis for this. You can bleed sometimes if a particular bowel movement is difficult or hard to pass. Or if you have the runs.
