Thrombosing: Banding hemorrhoids causes them to thrombose, or clot off. But this may shift venous flow to other dilated veins in the rectum leading to new hemorrhoids. So it's either that the old hemorrhoids have clotted but continue to ooze, or that new hemorrhoids have formed. You should ask your doctor to examine you for more information.
