It happens

First off the drops are worthless and do not work. You need to have the diet administered by a qualified physician, injectable HCG, and strict 500 calorie diet. When on the proper diet it is typical to have a BM every 3-4 days, you must drink plenty of water. When you do the wrong diet and take bogus drops you will get constipation which will irritate rectum/anus and cause blood in stools

Why does my gas and poop smell so bad after eating beef ? Could it be high bilirubin levels ? See Blood Test in my Health Files if needed.

Likely nitrates.

A great many high protein foods like meat have a high concentration of nitrates, which lead to foul smelling stool. Bilirubin is largely responsible for the color of stool as well as some of the smell.

Go see your Doctor

If you have not already been to your family doctor, it would seem to me that the question and history you gave us is the very definition of when one should be in touch with their family doctor.

You really need to see your doctor - hemorrhoids do not usually change the caliber or size of your stools.
