What does really dark brown stool with a little mucous mean?  Should i worry i had a colonoscopy last year it was good! hemorrhoids bleed when i wipe

Unclear: The fact that you had a normal colonoscopy a year ago is reassuring, however i think you should see your primary doctor to check for blood in your stool and identify if any further testing is required. ...Read more

Go to the Doctor: Usually one learns the 'three s' approach to managing their hemorrhoids at home. But, given your symptoms there is absolutely nothing to tell you other than that you must be seen in person, examined, and possibly sent on to surgery. Antibiotics treat infection. They do not treat hemorrhoids. ...Read more

Is it ok that when I wipe my butt it's a little bloody if I know I have hemorrhoids?

Is it ok that when I wipe my butt it's a little bloody if I know I have hemorrhoids?

Depends: Pruritus ani , hemorrhoids, fissures and fistula can also cause blood when wiping. Each is treated somewhat differently and so a specialist is best to get evaluated by so as to make the correct diagnosis. I assume that you are not having blood mixed in stool or in the water. Either way see a colorectal surgeon for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more

I have had several internal hemorrhoids removed and now I have to wipe excessively to get clean. Sometimes an hour or two later, i wipe again but very little. No blood, no pain no urge to go.

Pasty gooey: Hard to clean stool is usually due to a lack of fluids usually about 40 ounces short for the day. Stay away from caffeine and alcohol and increase your fluids. This should help in 3-4 days. You may also have had damage to your sphincter muscles from the surgery. This too needs to be evaluated. ...Read more

I s/t see blood on wipe due to large hemorrhoids but until now have never seen blood in toilet or on stool. Recently saw both. Also from hemorrhoids?

Likely, but...: Should get examined to confirm the bleeding source. Sometimes people with hemorrhoids bleed from other causes, or have other issues, including inflammation, diverticulodis (pockets in bowel wall, which can bleed), fragile blood vessels, polyps, tumors, cancer, other. ...Read more

I have twi hemorrhoids that are slightly bleeding and are painful. I have been using the gel and wipes and soaking in hot water for a month now.

Hemorrhoids: Continue present therapy, but make certain stool is soft so u do not strain during bm. Increasing fiber in diet, adding fiber supplement, & using a stool softener should help. Should also see pcp/gi/proctologist to b checked for other conditions: polyps, anal fissure, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel ds. ...Read more

I'm very scared because i just went to the bathroom and when i wiped i noticed black spots. I thought i had hemorrhoids but not sure. Please help?

Dont worry: Although black stool can be indicative of blood in the upper GI tract, its usually not subtle or spotty. Black flecks or spots is probably diet related and should resolve. Also can be caused by iron supplements or peptobismol. ...Read more

For a month now I've had a VERY itchy hemorrhoid. I can't go a day w/out a suppository and creams/wipes. Can't afford dr - no pain but not going away?

For a month now I've had a VERY itchy hemorrhoid. I can't go a day w/out a suppository and creams/wipes. Can't afford dr - no pain but not going away?

Stool softner: If the only problem is itching and you know it is a hemorrhoid then stool softeners can help decrease the irratation of bowel movements which will decrease the inflammation. However other things can cause rectal itching, such as worms. If hemorrhoid meds & stool softener does not decrease it you might want to be checked. If blood, drainage need exam. ...Read more

Have seen doc & she confirmed I have an external hemorrhoid. I went to the restroom and when wiped there was a blobish looking small amount of blood. Happened only the 1st time wiping. Should i worry?

Not worry, but: Be gentle with that hemorrhoid until it has a chance to shrink or disappear. Wipe gently, and dab with moistened towelette after bm's. Make sure you eat veggies & fiber, with lots of water to keep your stool soft. Constipation will make bleeding more likely. Ask your doctor whether she thinks some preparation h or other topical treatment would help. Sitz baths may help too. ...Read more
