Can u inject a hemorrhoid blood clot with something to dissolve the blood clot?

Can u inject a hemorrhoid blood clot with something to dissolve the blood clot?

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

Recurring large amount of dark rectal bleeding Inc. Large Blood clots. Colonoscopy showed only internal hemorrhoid. OK to assume blood only due to it?

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!

Past couple days having maroon blood in stool and toilet Today same thing but passed a blood clot could this be hemorrhoids?

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.

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?

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.

Get checked...: Hemorrhoidal bleeding is very common, however, there are other causes of rectal bleeding that are much more serious problems, like colon & rectal cancer. See a doctor for an exam... you should get a colonoscopy. Good luck!

Rectal bleeding enough to think it was menstration for 3 days with small blood clots. No constipation. Diarreah, no external hemorrhoids, no fissures?

Rectal bleesing: In the absence of the co ditions you mention, constipation, fissures, hemorrhoids, it is possible the blood is coming from insside the rectum. I recommend consulting with your doctor so the right investigation can be skne to locate the source of the blood.

? Micarrige: Either you did not ovulate and your period was late, or perhaps you had an early pregnancy that failed. Nothing to do depending on what happens with bleeding. If you start to bleed heavily you may need emergency care.

Pregnant with external hemmiroids but dark blood with blood clots. Is this serious?

Pregnant with external hemmiroids but dark blood with blood clots. Is this serious?

Maybe: You don't say how pregnant you are or exactly where the blood is coming from. A large amount of bleeding with clots is always a concern, whether it is vaginal or from your hemorrhoids, but the significance varies considerably.

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

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.

RBC hemoglobin 13.0. Dr said its low. Pooping blood daily with clots. Feel weak. No pain in abdomin. Fecal smear showed blood. Didn't feel hemorrhoids?

Rectal bleeding.: Although a hemoglobin of 13 is only minimally low, it is never normal to have blood in the stool. It is imperative to have an evaluation to determine why you are having G.I. bleeding. Your gastroenterologist should schedule tests to determine the cause of the bleeding. Do not delay in getting this evaluated. It can be life-saving. Good luck.

What does blood clots mean?

What does blood clots mean?

"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.

How can blood clots dissolve?

How can blood clots dissolve?

Blood clot removal: Blood clots in general are removed naturally from the body. The body has a system of clotting as well as a system to prevent too much clotting. Whenever a clot is formed in the body over time the body will naturally reabsorb it. Sometimes doctors give medication to prevent the blood from being able to clot easily.
