Haemorroids????

Posted , 4 users are following.

Right on the 9th dec 2017. I had been constipated due to lots of codeine. I finally went and I had lots of red blood on tissue and lots of red blood in the water of toilet. I have seen 2 x gp who says it's hemoroids. Has anyone else experienced this as I'm still getting streaks of blood on my stools????

    Did the doctors examine your rectum, before saying that it is hemorroid ? Hank

      Yes I had a inserted finger he didn't say if he didnt tell me if he could feel any haemorroids or anything, I didn't ask But with my symptoms he says he's 100 percent it's hemoroids but I'm just going over in my head. Like how do you no etc.

    Yes I've experienced exactly the same. For this reason I avoid codeine altogether as it slows the bowel as a side effect of its analgesic effect. Did you get any advice on how to treat the haemorrhoids from your GP?

    I take fibre supplements all year round to help keep the bowel healthy and to keep bowel movements softer.

      I just had the physical examination. Haemorrhoids are unpleasant and can be painful but most of the older population has them so unless they are a great pain or causing heavy bleeding all the time the advice (in the UK) is usually to treat them through your diet. I wish you well.

      Hi i had a issue similar to this.i kept having blood in stool after bowel movements.was also a red colour.they done a finger examination and said he could feel a small hemmy.so gave me laxatives.so week later I go back as most I went was 1 day without blood in the stool.then he puts me on supossatories for 2 weeks.stopped for 3 days then came back.long story short 2 weeks after that and they sent me for a sigmoidscopy.saying it's definatly hemmys.he wanted to inject them.turns out I had no hemmys but had a 2.5cm polyp in my sigmoid colon.and was bleeding with my bowell movements.You probably don't have the same as me.and don't want to scare you either.but I got fobbed off with its hemmies and waited for appointment 9 weeks in total.I also had tiny bits of blood in stool aswell.worth checking for.
