Can internal hemorrhoids be felt during an examination? And can they cause bloody pieces of tissue during a bowel movement?

Not normally: Internal hemorrhoids: blood filled cushions, not varicose veins; not usually felt during rectal exam. Usually painless vs. External hemorrhoids (different nerve supply). Can cause bright red blood in bowl, on toilet paper, or coating stool. Bloody pieces of tissue, blood mixed in the stool, dark blood, clots, etc need to be evaluated. Bright red blood may need to be investigated too. See md. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

Had an external hemorrhoid burst this morning, bleeding has stopped. Afraid that tomorrow's bowel movement will cause it to bleed again. What to do to minimize potential bleeding? Have to go daily :)

Care of hemorrhoids: Home therapy for hemorrhoids: bowel regimen (fiber, stool softeners, water, juice probiotics, laxatives to achieve two soft bowel movements daily), salves (prep h, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) anti fungals), and hygiene (shower, hair dryer area daily).

Could internal protruding hemorrhoids cause u not 2B able 2 have bowel movement? Took 2x laxido and 1x Dulcolax and was able to go but can't otherwise

May also need to do stool softeners if still constipated. Add laxatives if that is not enough. Also need to see ur doctor to have things examined. ...Read more

Have your hemorrhoids been surgically or medically managed (& with otc or prescription drugs)? Are you sure they're hemorrhoids? ...Read more

Can internal and external hemorrhoids interfere with bowel movements?

Yes: Hemorrhoids are enlarged blood vessels under the 'skin ' of the anal canal, like varicose veins. If they are not inflamed they may be painless and cause no interference with bowel movements.

After hemorrhoid surgery approximately how long before bowel movements return to normal and what is the best diet for after surgery?

After hemorrhoid surgery approximately how long before bowel movements return to normal and what is the best diet for after surgery?

One of the major: Determinants is whether you have general anesthesia or not (anesthetics paralyze bowel) and how many narcotic pain killers you take afterward. Many doctors advise starting stool softeners/fiber supplements before surgery. Stay super well-hydrated. Prune or apple juice may be helpful; raw veggies, while good for fiber, may be painful to pass. Two weeks, 3 at outside, and all should be good:) ...Read more

Past two days when I make a bowel movement it burns real bad. I do have a internal hemorrhoid. Is that why? Why would it burn though?

Past two days when I make a bowel movement it burns real bad. I do have a internal hemorrhoid. Is that why? Why would it burn though?

Unlikely: This is unlikely to be due to hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids a rarely hurts. External hemorrhoids may hurts but you will feel them. The burning is likely due to small tears in the anal canal. This can happen for patients that are usually constipated or have large bowel movements. Simple treatments are still softeners that are available over-the-counter, increase fiber intake, and sits baths. ...Read more
