Needs evaluation: If your colon evaluation was incomplete and you have heme positive stools you need your complete colon evaluated either with barium enema, helical ctscan, or repeat colonoscopy (using a pediatric scope, perhaps a general anesthetic, and make sure you have an experienced gastroenterologist or colon and rectal surgeon do your procedure.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I find myself constantly passing stool during the day no matter what I eat. I then find my lower passage very sore, n often bleeding.
Scratched near my stool area . Not a big scratch very tiny but itches during pee. Will it heal by the passage of time? Or any med should be used?
Exactly: Most traumatic scratches and abrasions of the anus will heal on their own with time, but applying a barrier cream or ointment (diaper rash balm, petroleum jelly, antibiotic ointment, etc.) will protect it while it heals and increase comfort while urinating and having bowel movements. ...Read more
I have a lot of bright red blood coming out on my anal passage when i wee or pass a stool - it is actually dripping - it has been 6 days?
Possibilities...: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G rectal trauma, fissure, hemorrhoids with straining), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more

Crohns Disease: All of the above symptoms, the abscesses, the rectal pain, and the mucus in your stool are indicative of the possibility of continued active inflammation from the Crohns disease. You likely need to have your medication either adjusted or changed. I would make it an appointment to see your gastroenterologist as soon as you can. Good luck. ...Read more
I found out I have four large internal hemorrhoids (they prevented the passage of stool and I ended up in the ER). Could they also change stool shape?
Yes&No, hemorrhoids: are stretched-out/varicose veins (either above or below the anal sphincter muscles) which connect the veins of the lower colon with veins of the skin collecting blood for return to the heart. Assuming no clots, the distending volume is simply blood & probably softer than feces. If the vein contains clots (& scarred down old clots) then greater stiffness & associated effect on fecal shape. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
