Blood in stool, growling stomach, suffering from hemorrhoids. Using anusol. Suggestions?

Hi doctor, my mother is 58 years old and has been suffering from hemorrhoids. She is eating lots of vegetables, fruits, drinking water but she is still getting blood in her stool. She has been using Anusol for the last one week and using baby wipes to clean the area. Why isn't the bleeding stopping? Also, her stomach has been growling for the last 2 days.

Welcome to HCM.
Eat more liquid,light diet.Bleeding might be due to some what hard stool.
You can give lactulose to make the stool loose.Apply local cream for healing and reduce pain.
If it is not improving and disturbing her routine life then next option is surgical removal.
Now a days stapler method is safe and good result.
Consult your surgeon for better guidance and medical management.
