I have had IBS for years. Have had several colonoscopies, the latest last sept. and everything ok. For quite some time I have been very constipated. My gyn just told me she suspects I have a Rectocele (colon slips down behind wall between vagina and rectum). Because of this, when I do have to have a BM, I have to push through my vagina to get it out. For the past few weeks, I have noticed that when I sit, I have a painful "pulling" feeling just inside my anus. I suspect this may be hemoroid. I know I have had them in the past (from birth of my son 22 years ago). They rarely flare up and when they do, they are on the outside and puff up like a balloon for a few days. Then go away. This pain is constant. It is not debilitating, but very uncomfortable. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Hemoroid? I've never felt one inside so I don't know. Tonight I had a small amount of blood on the tissue when I wiped. I talked to my GI dr. a few days ago about the constipation and rectocele. He said perhaps it was time for some test. He said the name of it but I don't remember. He said it would show him the structure of the rectum and what is going on. He's supposed to call me at the beginning of next week to schedule it. He said some other guy would do it and it's not a regular xray. I did mention the pressure I feel when I'm sitting, but the pain and blood developed after I talked to him. Should I call him special for this tomorrow? Or just wait until I hear from him next week and then mention it? If it is just a hemoroid, what do people do for it? Prep H suppositories? Thanks for any info you can give me. I'm so frustrated w/this whole thing!
