Come Monday, the 4th, I will have been bleeding for 6 weeks (provided that I am still bleeding by then). I've had a colonoscopy and my gastroenterologist says that I have internal hemorrhoids and that that is the source of the bleeding.
The blood is bright red and only occurs during bowel movements. I've had 2 days during this 6 week period in which I did not bleed. These both occurred within the last week or so. The bleeding came on suddenly with no warning.
Hydrocortisone doesn't seem to help. I've tried both a cream and suppositories. I worry about extended use of them as I've read that they can eventually thin the walls of the colon.
I'm worried because the bleeding is still ongoing. It has made having bowel movements a stressful affair. I'm considering ligation or another surgical option.
How can I get my hemorrhoids to stop bleeding?
