Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!

I read carefully all his concerns and I can say as follows:
1. usually in his age symptoms like bllod in stool are due to anal hemorrhoids or anal fissure.
2. This is why to my opinion there is nothing to be in panic.
It is a good choice to see a physician to better determine his issues.
Otherwise I would suggest to avoid constipation by using plenty of water and high fiber diet.
Meantime he can use Preparation H to improve his symptoms.
Wosh him fast recovery.
