hi,,ive had rectal bleeding on and off for the last 13 years,also definetely have at least one large pile,now normally my bleeding stops within a few days,however for the past week ive bled every time ive gone to the toilet.on one occasion my pile prolapsed and prevented the stool from coming out,the bleeding comes out after a bowel movement,i also can feel heaviness in my anus from what i assume is the swollen pile.there is no pain on my bm,and the blood color is mainly brightish red,ive also noticed on sitting down after a bm,a knitting itchy feeling in the anus...never had a colonscopy as i have severe anxiety problems too,just looking for assurance that this is likely piles,,i am 47 years old
Hi--it definitely sounds like a pile problem and just more of a problem for you recently. At least at this point, if you haven't considered it before, you should have banding--somewhat like a rubber band placed at the base of the pile to get rid of it. This sounds like a problem that really should have been properly addressed before now.
