Wife - experiencing bright red rectal bleeding. She has been diagnosis with hemorrhoids, but this time it is excessive. Is there an immediate risk?

Wife - experiencing bright red rectal bleeding. She has been diagnosis with hemorrhoids, but this time it is excessive. Is there an immediate risk?

Possibly: If the bleeding will not stop then she should go to the emergency room. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to die from hemorrhoidal bleeding. When I was an intern I pled my case regarding a patient that I was taking care of and it fell on deaf ears. The woman was dead by the next morning. The resident above me refuse to believe that someone could die from hemorrhoids and was looking further up in the gut for the source of bleeding when it was so obvious to me that the massive hemorrhaging was coming from the hemorrhoids. Have also seen one of my own psychiatric patients almost die for the same reason. She was discharged from the hospital with massive hemorrhoidal bleeding. Surgeons want to put off the surgery until monday. I had her husband stay up with her all night to observe her bleeding and when the massive bleeding started up again he got her to the emergency room her life was saved in time. The surgeons had tocome in on a sunday to operate. ...Read more
