persistent hemorrhoid discomfort

I am in my 50s and have been having hemorrhoids as long as I can remember. Usually no problem, some bleeding, and if they were uncomfortable, using suppositories for a couple of days usually helped. I have also always had not the best bowel habits and usually large hard stools every 2 days or so. After a hard BM about 1 month ago, the usual discomfort (maybe some vague achiness and a full feeling in the rectum) that would get better with suppositories in the past has persisted. I have started drinking more water and tried to increase my fiber. This has resulted in having softer BMs daily, but I still have this uncomfortable feeling of something being there that seems most prominent after a BM and in the hours before (I've got to where I go most every morning).
I have been to my internist and also to a GI doc, who thinks it is probably internal hemorrhoids. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy next week and he has said he will do the infrared coagulation on some of the hemorrhoids at that time if they are grade 2 or less.
My question is have other sufferers had this similar feeling of the presence of the hemorrhoids that seems to persist like this.

Re: persistent hemorrhoid discomfort

Seems like you are having the same as my wife, she is going in for her test Wednesday....she has noticed some blood when whiping after a bowek movement and pain in the anus area during that....It started weeks back when she was constipated and was pushing blood in her stools, just bright read blood on the toilet paper...doc said most likely a anal fissure or internal hemrroid...obviously they cannot rule everything else out without the test being performed
