welcome to HealthcareMagic
The blood in stools may be due to piles which can be in your case as you also have a history of prolapse.So do not neglect and get examined by a doctor; preferable a surgeon to find the cause of bleeding and then get it treated.Also as you are having this pain during stool if it is a spasmodic pain which is off and on there can be some infection of intestine.Please get examined.
