Is it normal to have major bloating a day after a rectal exam w/ lower back pain? Impacted w/ blood in stool, external/internal hemorrhoids, loose stool

Depends: I would need to know more about your hx, and what exactly was done during the rectal exam.

If you are having further difficulties, consult with dr who ordered, or performed tests. Good luck. ...Read more

"Internal Hemorrhoids" keep coming back.  Pain is just on the inside(either left or right side towards back).Tired of them.GI says NO to surgery. Why?

Hemorrhoids: The best treatment for internal hemorrhoids is to drink a whole lot of water and to take a fiber supplement with every meal. It is difficult for most people to consume high-fiber diet therefore just taking a fiber supplement with every meal should keep your stools extremely soft.

Maybe the calf pain: Medial thigh pain is a higher dermatome, usually L3 or L4 nerve roots. Buttock, posterior-lateral thigh, posterior calves however are consistent with S1, sometimes L5 radiculopathy (tingling, burning, aching, pulling). You probably need more of a work up, PT for core stabilization, stretching, nerve slides and piriformis stretching, maybe an epidural, MRI if not done yet. ...Read more
