Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thanks for putting your query in hcm. I can understand your concerns regarding your father. For inflammation causing pain in stomach I will advise gim to give a protonpump inhibitor like omeprazole along with a prokinetic agent like domperidone. For constipation give him polyethylene glycol after dissolving it in a glass of water. For swelling in sigmoid colon I will advise him to undergo sigmoidoscopy to see the cause of that swelling XXXXXXX can be malignancy also. For making stool softer give him lots of fruits and vegetables and may add psyllium fibres. For hemorrhoids give him capsule dobesil thrice a day. I hope I have answered your query and this will him. Wish him a good health
