The blood is due to hemorrhoids. I think you should get further evaluated by proctologist to determine if your hemorrhoids can be treated with medications or with surgical intervention.

For the moment, I advise as following:
- apply prep H each time you have a bowel movement
- use stool softeners (lactulose); gentle laxatives (senna) and fiber (prunes, psyllium) in order to get a soft and regular bowel movement
- increase water intake
- go to toilet each time you feel the need

Wish fast recovery.
