Thanks for posting your query.

As you have suggested in your history that you are a patient of hemorrhoids, what I presume is that you are also constipated.

Usually what you would have found in your stool would be undigested particles of food That may appear crunchy to you.

There is a possibility that you could be suffering from collitis in some form.

Please write back to me with a few more details regarding your problem so that I can guide you better. It would be great if you can answer these following questions.

1] Are you constipated?
2] Do you pass mucus in stool?
3] Do you have a sense of inadequate defecation after finishing your motion?
4] Do you have a sensation of passing stool, some time after major meals?
5] Does the consistency of your stool keep changing from hard to ill formed and otherwise?

Please do write back with answers so that I can suggest better.

Awaiting your response.
