1. you have only mentioned about constipation
and use of medicine to relieve your constipation and blood in stool
, but nowhere it's mentioned that what is/was the cause of bleeding??
2. Bleeding indicates disorder or disease of digestive tract, so what was the source of bleeding: upper GI (esophagus
,Stomach,duodenum) or lower GI (colon,rectum,anus)??
3. going by your history, it seems that 'blood with stool' indicates hemorrhoids unless proved otherwise.
4. rule of thumb is:constipation causes hemorrhoids( due to over straining) and hemorrhoids causes constipation (due to fear of blood), thus vicious cycle goes on.
i.any history of anemia, prolonged fever
ii. use of laxatives with Aluminium, prolonged use Iron,calcium, Anticholinergics??
iii. Thyroid Function test (under active thyroid?)
iv. any Psychological cause: depression
,Personality Dysfunction,Physical Inactivity??
Reason/Cause of blood in stool has to be evaluated by general surgeon
by doing suitable tests and P/R Examination., whether due to gastritis,piles,ulcer or any infection?
.In the mean time you can follow the following regime:
