Internal Hemoroids Anemia
How long do I recover after internal bleeding?It's been 10 weeks now(got7, 3 hgb back then)and i still got anemia(12.6hgb). Iron is101. I feel ok.
Unusual for: Young men to have "internal bleed". Root cause need to be solved (ulcer, polyp, erosive esophagitis, mallory-weiss tear). Going from HGB of 7.3 to 12.6 is quite a great leap. Your iron is fine. It takes time, and many do very well at 12.6. If it remains as low in 6 months, call back. It takes 3 months to re-cycle your blood cell component volume. Your oxygen needs will limit the natural stimulu. ...Read more

Then i would need to know if you have any problems with your blood clotting. Anemia simply means that your body cannot keep up with the blood loss. At your age, cancer is unlikely, but you cannot live with this, and, in fact, your life might be in danger. Time to go see a doctor. ...Read more
If my hemoglobin (12.6) and hematorcrit (38.3%) are low but my iron is ok (101) does it mean that anemia doesn't comes from internal bleeding?
No: You are most likely "hemo-diluted." the blood volume expands and contracts depending on gains and loss. In the desert, one becomes volume contracted (hemoconcentrated), while over ingesting liquids or IV fluids, hemodiluted. If the absolute fe (iron) storage is normal, you're not anemic. ...Read more
I think I have an internal hemorrhoid from childbirthing, how can I treat this without the humiliation of a doctors exam?
Best to be examined: Start by optimizing your fiber (25-30 grams/ day = 5-6 servings of fruit and vege) and hydration (~ 8 glasses of fluid/ day). Stool softener may be helpful so you don't strain to have a bm. However, if you have grade ii/iii hemorrhoids, you will need to see a doctor. Don't be embarrassed, this is a very common problem and it usually isn't as bad as you think. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Fiber: The best home remedie is diet modification. Try to get about 20-30 grams of fiber per day. This will make sure your stool is soft and you don't strain to have a bowel movement. This will make sure you don't aggravate the existing problem. Preparation h works will with current hemorrhoids.

Sits bath and reduce: Constipation that causes this to begin with. Hard stools don't help prevent hemmohoids. You may need to go to a proctologist if it's too large to reduce, because its basically like a vericose vein by the time it gets over dilated. The high intrathoracic pressure to create the Vasalva maneuver to have BMs may have been going on too long. See your PCP for evaluation, and referral.Drink more liquids! ...Read more
