What can I do to get rid of edematous mucosa in the rectum? I eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables daily and exercise regularly.

Probably surgery: If you are seeing "edematous mucosa" then it is falling out and will need to be removed or sutured back in place.

If it is being seen with an anoscope it still suggests some type of injury, probably from prolapsing (falling down) into the sphincters. Hemorrhoid banding might work. ...Read more
