Has he been given the three day diet with medication to clean him out before the procedure.
Believe me that will do the job!!... He could take a laxative, prunes or fresh figs before then.
I cant remember the name of the prep I was given before my Colonoscopy but it (would move a mountain)... forgive the pun...
My main worry is, he has not had a proper bowel movement for 5 days,only little bits with blood on them, how long can piles bleed for,if it is piles because there is still blood there.
also why cannot he have a proper bowel movement ???
I understand your concern. Why dont you ring your Dr and tell him this.
Has he started his Colonoscopy preperation treatment yet. He will or should be given a diet for three days before prep and medication for the last day and this will move everything as he will need to be completely cleaned out for the Colonoscopy.
Why he is suffering Constipation at present is no doubt the reason for this procedure also the blood problem.

The following user gives a hug of support to solofelix:
Had the seidoscopy ? He removed a large polyp from the bowel, did not treat the piles as we are going away,said it looks benign, but to see him in about #3/4weeks if bleedig continues not to worry and he will then treat the piles,
said there is nothing sinister going on.
Long may it continue and enjoy the holiday!!...
