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!

I am currently being tested for IBS, as I have had severe bouts of constipation and diarrhea for well over a year. I have occasional blood, pencil thin, loose stools and external hemorrhoids. I am also experiencing a constant pain in my upper abdomen, coupled with severe nausea and a feeling that I am going to get sick. I had to submit a stool sample today, and I noticed that there were a lot of dark green, leafy looking substances in the stool. They were tough to the touch but tore apart when pulled. I haven't eaten any sort of green vegetable in well over a week. Any thoughts?

Don't know if symptoms are tied together but here goes. Over the last year my vision in my left eye has become a little blurred. I also have developed some blood when I have a bowel movement. The blood is mostly on the tissue and not in the stool but only happens once a month. I over heard some people talking about someone else with the same symptoms and they had said that it was a form of liver disease/cancer. Is there truth to this? Do my symptoms fit or are they two completely separate issues? I'm being treated now for hemorrhoids and have an eye appointment scheduled. The treatment for the hemroids did not work and I have to set up another appointment.
