Blood Clot In Hemorrhoid
How do I tell if the pain coming from my butt is sciatica or an internal thrombosed (blood clot) hemorrhoid?
Past couple days having maroon blood in stool and toilet Today same thing but passed a blood clot could this be hemorrhoids?
Unlikely: Hemorrhoids usually cause bright red painless blood and not clots. Maroon blood suggests bleeding somewhere higher in the GI track. It is also something that needs to be checked, this is especially true in someone on Motrin as yourself. If you have any symptoms of lightheadedness or weakness you should go to an UC or ER. Otherwise, call you PCP or GI doctor for an appointment. ...Read more
Recurring large amount of dark rectal bleeding Inc. Large Blood clots. Colonoscopy showed only internal hemorrhoid. OK to assume blood only due to it?
Unlikely: The bleeding is probably from diverticulosis or something known as an arterio-venous malformation (AVM). Since these can be anywhere in the colon, if surgery is ever needed to remove that section, it is important to find the exact location with a variety of imaging tests, usually only helpful during a bleeding episode. Hope this helps! ...Read more
No: Once a hemorrhoid has clotted, best option is to have it surgically removed. It will eventually shrink and resorb the blood leaving behind a tag but in the meantime the clotted hemorrhoid will be very painful and inconvenient. Sometimes the surgeon will simply cut it open and evacuate (remove) the clot ...Read more

I've had a history of hemorrhoids, I just had a bowel movement and I the toilet was red and when I wiped there was a little blood clot is that normal?
Could be: As a physician I do not like to describe things as "normal" or not but use ideas like expected or understandable. We are born with hemorrhoidal tissues and bright red blood and even small clots can come from them. If there was no pain then it probably was not a tear or fissure. Keep an eye on this and if it continues you really need to see a provider and have a rectal exam if not short scope. ...Read more

Defecating blood nonstop.... no pain at all. Went to doctor they said it was a bursted hemorrhoid but wouldn't that be painful? The blood was in clots
Blood in stool: I presume your doctor did an exam? Hemorrhoids are internal and external. The external are the painful itchy ones typically. Internal not so much. Even when I suspect an internal hemorrhoid I have to consider some type of visualization in the future. Flexible sigmoidoscopy vs colonoscopy in the future. If the bleeding continues please don't ignore it. ...Read more

"Blocked Pipes": Blood contains proteins which cause the blood to congeal when outside of blood vessels. This can be life-saving following trauma but can be life-threatening if the clotting mechanism is activated inside a blood vessel, leading to the obstruction of flow to the brain (stroke), heart muscles (mi), or lungs (pulmonary emboli), to name a few. Rx hinges on opening the blockage asap+/-blood thinners. ...Read more
