Brief Answer:
likely intestine not panic till further examination or results

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the details .

* Seems more likely from intestine pathology rather than hemorrhoids .

* Doctor will confirm the diagnosis with ano proctoscopy evaluation and if
necessary colonoscopy to find out the source of bleeding & further
management in accordance to that .

Gentle request to
- Make her calm because stress will increase her problems .
- Maintain her hydration with plenty of liquids .

Wishing her fine recovery .
Regards dear take care .
