In Reply to: Bleeding hemmorrhoids posted by p on October 16, 2000 at 04:43:55:

: I had a bleeding hemmorrhoid last month. It went away when I used more fiber in my diet and drank more water. I have a BM and there was bright red streaks,a friend of mine told me not to worry only if the blood is dark do you worry. My half-brother had colon cancer surgery 10 yrs. ago and my mom just had cancer surgery last week. I'm 45 yrs. old,m,and I'm scared.
: Do they give you sedatives when they do a colonscopy? That is the only way that I would have one done,
: My g/f knows nothing of this and I prefer to keep it that way for now. Thanks!!
most people do think bleeding that is red is from hemeroids, but you never know. a doctor could use a scope(short) and easily confirm the presence of a hemroid that's been bleeding. If you do want to do a colonoscopy, they are really easy. the worse part about them is the 'lemonade' drink you drink the night before. when i had mine, i had a mixture of a sedative and painkiller given to me. all i remember is they said they were going to start, i said ouch once, and at that time they said, oh we're done. there was no pain later, just a lot of gas which was embarassing. so you see go for it!!
