Hemorrhoids (Definition)

The veins in the rectum can swell and become puffy when a person has frequent pressure on them from pushing out a bm. This is constipation.

Can u inject a hemorrhoid blood clot with something to dissolve the blood clot?

Can u inject a hemorrhoid blood clot with something to dissolve the blood clot?

No: Once a hemorrhoid has clotted, best option is to have it surgically removed. It will eventually shrink and resorb the blood leaving behind a tag but in the meantime the clotted hemorrhoid will be very painful and inconvenient. Sometimes the surgeon will simply cut it open and evacuate (remove) the clot ...Read more

It is also something that needs to be checked, this is especially true in someone on Motrin as yourself. If you have any symptoms of lightheadedness or weakness you should go to an UC or ER. Otherwise, call you PCP or GI doctor for an appointment. ...Read more

Ive had a history of hemorrhoids, i just had a bowel movement and i the toilet was red and when i wiped there was a little blood clot is that normal?

Ive had a history of hemorrhoids, i just had a bowel movement and i the toilet was red and when i wiped there was a little blood clot is that normal?

Could be: As a physician I do not like to describe things as "normal" or not but use ideas like expected or understandable. We are born with hemorrhoidal tissues and bright red blood and even small clots can come from them. If there was no pain then it probably was not a tear or fissure. Keep an eye on this and if it continues you really need to see a provider and have a rectal exam if not short scope. ...Read more
