Question about bleeding after BM

Postby MachineGunKelly » Thu Jun 21, 2018 2:47 pm

Is it normal after a BM which shows no blood or streaking on the stool, or TP to go back to the bathroom and check again, but when pressing TP there is a little pink/light red? Is that more consistent w/ a hemorrhoid or fissure?

Why would you go back and wipe yourself again? Do you have any itchiness or pain after passing a stool?

yeah itchiness - I guess it's just to confirm that it in fact is caused by a hemorrhoid/fissure and not passed through my GI tract...

Itchiness is usually associated with hemorrhoids. How old are you? Does colon cancer run in your family
