My husband had a partial colectomy a month ago due to diverticulits..but now he is having internal hemmorhoids. Could these be related?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

He probably had the hemorrhoids before, but without symptoms.
He probably was taking pain killer that will make him constipated, which can make the hemorrhoids to enlarged and cause pain with occasional bleeding. He should contact his surgeon and be evaluated.
