I am currently in and out of hospital - mainly the ED for pain relief as i may have had endo metriosis returned. All bloods, urine, and scans showed nothing abnormal - which was what I expected as that was the case when I first had endo. I also have moderate hemorrhoid, one of which is prolapsed. I have had 2 others treated via banding, but this (prolapsed one) didn't take.( it actually abcessed- the doctor said it had been the size of a walnut!) Any way I am having a lot of rectal bleeding, sometimes very small -just around the anus but other times bright and/or dark blood in the toilet bowl. I have attached 3 pictures that occurred over a period of 2 hours. With all the morphine etc at the hospital I forgot to tell the doctors about it. What could it mean and what should I do?

Thanks for writing to us.

This bleeding in my opinion may be because of hemorrhoid.
You should go for sigmoidoscopy or proctoscopy to identify the exact cause after consultation with a surgeon.

Treatment includes sitzs bath, antibiotics, stool softener, lignocaine jelly locally or if it is abscess drain by your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query If you have further questions I will be happy to help.
