In Reply to: IBS & Hemmoriods also Stool Softeners? posted by Leigh Gaffney-Bain on November 04, 2000 at 17:54:22:

Hi Leigh,
I am glad that you wrote---most of us have been there and know what you are going through.

As you know hemorrhoids are swollen veins and similar to varicose veins---they have lost their elasticity and bruise extremely easily.Any moderate bruise can cause bleeding. You should never but never allow yourself to become constipated or strain when you have a bowel movement--it Will cause bleeding.I am sure you already know this.

There are several things that you can do to help manage your problems. Use a water soluble fiber supplement that makes your stool much more formed and gentler. Psyllium is safe to use daily. I don't personally like stool softeners because they should not be used regularly and what do you do when you are not using them and they have some effects on the body that you don't need to deal with---you have enough.
I have found that some foods thin your blood more than you need but cannot think of any right now except asprin.Thinner blood ---bleeds more readily.
Use an ointment in and around the anus before and after every BM. A very good ointment is Derma Medicone---it has been in use for about 75 years and I have not found any better---you may have to order it. It is very healing and does not come off easily.
God Bless---Harry
