Hello,

Bright blood in or after stools could be due to a variety of conditions, the commonest being hemorrhoids(bleeding piles) or anal fissures. Check out if he complains of pain lasting some time after passing motions or hard stools (more likely to be anal fissures in that case). In case of hard stools, give him a diet rich in fibers like green leafy vegetables, fruits, oats and lots of water.
Also get him to consult your family doctor or a surgeon so that they can examine him and diagnose the cause and suggest appropriate remedy. Homeopathy is beneficial in both the conditions .

HI
I suggest that you get him to seek advise from a surgeon to rule out piles or hemorrhoids if he is also complaining of pain while passing stools.

I am in recovery from an eating disorder. In the past few weeks I have gained back a healthy 10 lbs and have been eating very healthily and stayed active. Today I was alarmed because when I wiped myself after going to the bathroom I found a large dab of blood on my toilet paper. I dabbed again and got nothing. I checked myself and still saw no continuous flow of blood of any sort. My fecal matter was not red, yellow, or black and my stomach doesn t hurt significantly so it doesn t seem like anything is going on or rupturing inside of me that I should be worried about (I have had problems with laxative abuse before so I am pretty familiar with what symptoms of internal damage should look like.) I m hoping that this might just be me getting my period back, although it s been so long that I don t really recognize the symptoms of the menstrual cycle anymore. I was a bit worried so I was hoping to get a professional opinion on what this might be. Thank you.

I was diagnosed with a ruptured cyst on my left ovary 3 days ago. I have been to the ER and gyno a couple times in these last few days... But this morning when I went to the bathroom I noticed blood on the toilet paper after I wiped. Then I noticed a little in my urine . Is this normal since I have a ruptured cyst and its letting off a lot of fluid and blood? Or should I head back to the ER? Please help! (: thanks you!

Hello: I have quite a concern and I will be going to the general doctor tomorrow for the physical examination. First a little about me, I am a 28 year old male. I am currently a 2nd year medical student in guadalajara but live in the United States. For about the past three weeks I ve noticed my stool has become progressively softer (for every single stool). Initially the smell and color was normal. For the past two days however the stool has become yellowish. What brings me concern was that my last stool passed was very soft, a darker yellow color, smelly, and much of the food I had eaten the night before was not digested. I have checked my blood pressure and it is normal. Heart rate is 70. No fever, or general feeling of malaise. No pain at all. No significant weight loss or fatigue. I ve had fellow students check for fluid wave and there is some movement on the other side but it s not a very fluid movement (is the opposite side not supposed to move AT ALL? Or can it move a little but should not be liquid movement?). Currently I am taking a larger does of Ibuprofen prescribed by a doctor here because about three weeks ago a painless non-inflamed lump was felt underneath the skin slightly anterior to the angle of the mandible. I have been taking the Ibuprofen for about 5 days and the lump has not gone away. In the past (5 years ago) I have had an H. Pylori infection with a subsequent ulcer in the duodenum. Only medication was used to treat the infection/ulcer. No followup was done afterwards. Beginning around the same time as the ulcer I have had recurrent bouts of hemorrhoids. Blood could be seen on wiping. Currently this is happening as well. About 8 years ago I suffered from a pneumonia but do not remember if it was viral or bacterial. I ve also had a pretty long history of right sided feeling in my abdomen. I would say the feeling is located directly on the line that would separate the upper and lower quadrant, slightly above the umbilicus. The feeling was never painful. I know the doctor I visit tomorrow will get to do the necessary physical tests to see if there is any significant pathology but I need to hear what other things it could be. The doctors here usually shoo us away because they think we are too young to get anything serious or they assume that just because we read a chapter in pathology we automatically think we suffer every disease in the textbook. Anyway, I know living in Mexico currently will expose me to certain bugs. However the course of those from what I know would not cause a 3 week history of progressively looser stools and the yellowness/malabsorption for the past two days. Any suggestions/comments of what it may be is more than welcome.

Dear Doctor, Around 1.5 months back I had undergone hemorrhoid Surgery and it was cured after the surgery. But since then I don't feel climax at the time of ejaculation. And then I checked my semen but it was found very little 2 to 3 drops and very thin and like water. I feel that this is not semen, before my semen was thick and colour is off white and volume was high. During my surgery I was given anesthesia and after my surgery I felt to pass urine and as I was still under anesthesia a tube was inserted into my penis and it was remove after passing the urine. Is it a cause for no ejaculation of semen and no climax or surgery or medicine I had for the treatment of hemorrhoid ? Is it curable ? Please help me doctor. I am a 46 year old of male.
