All explanations given thoroughly dear .

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the details .

* I strongly recommend to consult a Consultant surgeon and get proctoscopy
examination to confirm the diagnosis of bleeding hemorrhoid , as
there may be component of IBS also contributing .

* Suggestions for better recovery of possible tear in hemorrhoid :

- Drink plenty of liquids .
- Diet rich in high fiber content with green leafy veg , legumes , cereals , pulses
- Avoid all oily , spicy , non veg stuffs , beverages , alcohol of any type .
- Sitz bath ( sitting in a tub filled with lukewarm water for 10 minutes each
3 times a day and additionally after passing stool ) help recovery faster .
- Avoid stress , anxiety .
- Have regular sound sleep of 8 hours .
- Avoid exposure to excess heat , long drives , sitting on hard surfaces .
- Medicines for bleeding ( like tranexamic acid , ethamsylate or others ) must
only be taken after doctor consultation only .

Hope this will help you .
Welcome for any further queries .
Wishing you fine recovery from the same .
