Question: my hemorrhoid is bleeding. How do I stop it. Also, I have this feeling of bloating a couple days after taking electrolytes in preparation for a failed colonoscopy (but procedure is rescheduled at a future date). Thank you for your help.

Brief Answer:
Depletion of gut flora due to colonoscopy preperation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for query.

For bloating i would suggest you to take probiotic like VSL# 3 twice daily.Colonoscopy preperation sometimes deplete the natural gut flora causing bloating belching etc.
Along with it take Omeprazole 40 mg once daily for next 5 days.
Regarding your bleed i would suggest you to use Hydrocortisone ointment locally in rectal canal.Its available as brand name Preperation H.
Along with it take Laxatives for few days as hard stools or straining may erode the mucosa of rectum.So a laxative and stool softener can be taken for few days.
A bulk forming agent would also lubricate stool passage like fybrogel.

Bleeing if not controlled even after that then in few days then consult a general surgeon asap.

Thanks!

I just had surgery to remove stones from both of my kidneys and also had stents placed in both of them. I am urinating but I feel like I am not going as much as I should. My abdomen is also extremely distended. I have been taking stool softeners 3x daily. Is this normal and is there anything I can do to relieve the swelling?

Hi my grandson is 19 years old and has suffered with constipation for a number of years, he is taking a stool softener which has helped a lot. However he didn't take it for 2 days last weekend, and when he came home all the blood vessels on his face had burst from trying to have a bowel movement while he was away. He also had some blood tests done over the past month or so, and his doctor said he has a low white cell count, but she doesn't know if it's connected to the bowel problem. He is just getting over a bout of flu and seems to be sleeping a lot over the past few weeks ie. sometimes all day at weekends and all night too. What do you think it could be?
