DonnaH,
I think you need to eat more fiber,and talk to your DR. You sound like you have constipation somewhat. You would be better of if your BM was softer.So it wouldn't make you bleed. Plus you need to move your bowels more regularly. Hope this helps.

I have the same problems. By reading the message boards it has helped me a lot. I received a lot of good tips. Here's some that have helped me....Drink lots and lots of water....take 400-600mg of Magnesium per day....add whole psyllium husks to juice or another drink in the morning (only add 1/2 or less of the recommended dose because your body has to get use to this slowly or you will get stomach cramps)...also STAY AWAY FROM CARBONATED BEVERAGES (they dehydrate you and cause the stool to be hard and unpassable). Good luck, let me know how it works for you.
