A member asked:

Diagnosed with hemorrhoids after a colonoscopy, i feel blocked up and struggle to poop is this normal? finished anusol and no change in bowel habits.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Constipation: Hemorrhoid veins are a normal finding at colonoscopy and can become inflamed or irritated by chronic straining and constipation. These veins would not be the cause of constipation, and anusol will not correct constipation. Drink more water, eat more fiber (fruits, vegetables, metamucil), avoid fried and junk foods.
