Painful Bowel Movements, Blood In Stools. Virtual Colonoscopy Recommended. Other Options?

When I have a bowel movement it hurts when it first starts to come out and I have just spot of blood , I was treated with hydrocort supposotories 3 x s a day for 7 days did not hurt while using because stools were really soft I have no hemmerhoids or fissures per dr, she was treating for internal hemmerhoids said I had purple spots in rectum , I eat lots of fruits and veggies I dont feel my bowel movements are hard. She has now recomended a virtual colonoscopy . Would there be any other options??

Hello
This symptoms are typical for hemorrhoids. How do you know that you dont have it?
Mostly hemorrhoids are not visible outside an anus (it must be really advanced to be visible), that is why it is necessary to have at least rectoscopy or colonoscopy performed (not a virtual because it might not reveal hemorrhoids).
Take care
