Drink plenty of fluids , take stool softeners and local care , will heal most of the time , or may need procedural intervention ( surgery ) ...Read more

Bright red bleeding 3 years ago-none since.Sigmoid done at time and dr didn't see anything. Said it could have been a hemorrhoid that healed.Possible?

Topical over the counter cremes, good hydration, moderate to high fibre diet, sitz baths all may help. If the bleeding persists , or is tender, see your doctor. This may be self limited as the bleeding may be the disruption of the engorged hemorrhoid. Good luck. ...Read more

Your physician may recommend stool softeners particularly bulking agents such as Benefiter or Metamucil which should be taken with meals. There are other remedies as well but try not to spend a lot of time on the toilet (less than 3 min). Doubt intervention is necessary. ...Read more
