Hemorrhoidectomy & Bowel Obsessive Syndrome

User Profile
I have been having bowel issues for almost a decade now unfortunately, and as of September of last year I had an Internal Hemorrhoid Surgery(Hemorrhoidectomy) actually! Almost a year later I am still bleeding when I use the bathroom to evacuate my stool. I am also having a bowel movement every other day, and when I do have a bowel movement. I end up going back and fourth to the bathroom at least 3-4 times in one day trying to evacuate/excrete the rest of my stool/fecal matter actually! I also have BOS(Bowel Obsessive Syndrome) I think, and I think that has contributed to a lot of my bowel problems over the years. Always feeling the need to excrete every single piece of stool out, if you get my drift! Also, once I am finally done using the bathroom in a day after 3-4 times of being on the toilet, I am so exhausted. That I eventually have to take a nap afterward actually! Does anybody know at all what is wrong with me, because all these symptoms are about to drive me up the wall!

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Your symptoms could be due to recurrance of hemorrhoids, which are resulting in bleeding in the stools.

When blood collects in the rectum and results in its distension, it is common to have such symptoms, that you have mentioned.

You might consult your treating surgeon or a gastroenterologist for proper advice and help.
