Hi! Good morning. i am Dr Shareef answering your query.

From your history, it seems that the hemorrhoid mass has sloughed out after banding which might be considered to be normal. Post colonoscopy pain would wear off after some time. He could have some anti spasmodic for this pain. Prostate is a separate issue which occurs in such age group and for this he has to be seen by a urologist. If I were your doctor, I would refer him to his treating specialist in case of increase in the intensity of his problems.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.

Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. I wish you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
