Rectal bleeding during bowel movements, passing gas during urination, soft stools, no foul smell. Had internal hemorrhoid banding. Cause?

Hi, Iv e been having off and on bright red rectal bleeding when going to the bathroom, sometimes when I have a bowel movement , sometimes just when I have gas while urinating. This happens when stool is soft, even with no straining or constipation . At times I also have a watery, tan discharge in between bathroom visits. There is no feces smell to the discharge; it smells like raw flesh. I had internal hemorrhoid banding done a year ago, and was having some bleeding before then, but this is more profuse.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello,

As per my surgical experience, there is the possibility of slippage of band ligation of the hemorrhoids, causing piles to bleed profusely.

The fluid discharge from the anus with raw flesh smell can be reactive fluid discharge via inflammation or irritation of rectal or anal canal mucosa.

Must undertake an evaluation with OPD base consultation with a surgeon who had done internal hemorrhoid banding.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon

I ve had bad rectal bleeding four times now every time I ve tried to pass stool. Twice I succeeded in defecating a little but with blood. The other two times I just passed showers of blood. I ve also had discomfort in my abdomen and trouble with bowel movements (diarrhoea and constipation). And I have slight pain somewhere in my pelvis. another thing I ve begun to notice is little white tissue in my urine.. I m almost 20. Female. With only a medical history of rhinosinusitis. What could these things possibly mean?

Hi, I ve been rectally bleeding very minor (drop of bright red blood on poop & toilet paper mixed with yellow discharge stools look normal brown and not flat) since about August been to 3 Drs (one surgeon) had a Digital rectal exam found internal Hemorrhoids full of blood with itching and burning. Still burns a when pooping & bleeding has gotten better and doesn t bleed everytime I go to bathroom but keeps recurring over days (4 to 5 days) time and its painless bleeding nothing else hurts, I ve been tested for anemia 3 times including full blood work (came back normal) but not anemic, fingernails continue to get lighter (losing the dark pigment and can still see healthy moons on 8 of my nails) but iron levels stay the same was higher than the second time I was tested not fatigued and still can do life functions all day long. I m only 26 years old and this started in July and it was worse (lots of blood 3 to 4 whipes full of it) but since has gotten better (1 while with toilet paper and sometimes nothing and dry) but still bleeding, also, 2 Drs have looked in there one with a small lighted thing and have said no current bleeding inside rectum which says it s not constant or continuing. I m maintaining my weight eating still and basically still healthy other than when going to bathroom which I still go every day at noon sometimes can go twice a day. Also, am currently taking metemucil to help my situation I m asking is do you think in fact this is just Hemorrhoids and nothing else and would I be anemic by now since this has been going on for quite awhile almost 6-7 months? And thanks

I have diarrhea but only blood and mucus come out . It looks to be about 2 or 3 oz each time. The blood is heavy and falls to the bottom of the toilet bowl. I have severe abdominal pain and cannot hold down water or food. When I take a sip of water about 10-15 min. later the abdominal pain becomes more severe and and I pass a lot of blood. I also have chills and I m dizzy. My ex-husband cancelled my health insurance so I m no longer covered otherwise I d head straight to the E.R. I ve never had hemorrhoids but that seems to be the consensus by family and friends because of the color of the blood. What else could it be? Thank you for your time.

Hi, I’m a 39 year old female and have been suffering from haemorrhoids for almost 2 years. I’m not getting a lot of bleeding, itching or discomfort (or not as much as I used to); however, over the last 6 months, I have been getting a thick, cloudy discharge and a dose of smelly fluid throughout the day occasionally (sometimes with some blood spots). I have tried Preparation H and Anusal treatments without much luck. I also had a colonoscopy done about a six months ago – apparently my colon looks great with no polyps, no problems, except the haemorrhoids (on the outside). Because of the discharge, my doctor recommended taking this to the next level and seeing a gastroenterologist/surgeon. However, I would much rather try a less invasive option, if there is one – besides my appointment has been scheduled for DEC 2012. Over the last few weeks I started taking magnesium and selenium pills, and I noticed that the occasional bleeding from haemorrhoids is gone, plus I have a much easier time going to the washroom. However, the discharge and fluid is still there.

I havent had a BM for almost 3 weeks now.. i have an anal fissure a sentinel pile, internal hemorrhoids and i need to have a sphincterectomy done. Iv been dealing woth this off and on for years now but its just gotten unbearable within the past 3 or 4u month. The urge to go is there but the stool is so large and impacted that i just cant stand the horrible pain and uts almost to the point were the pain is so bad tht it seems like even why i try to work past it my body wont let me. Iam terrified and in an indescribable amount of pain. If i have tried so many thing you wouldnt even believe the extent tht iv gone to help it and iv seen a gastro but he didnt help me. Is there anyway to get this out without pain? Or is there a way tht my gastro may b able to get it out of me mwithout putting me through that psin?
