I do not smoke drink or take drugs I was also diagnosed GERD acid reflux

Your symptoms are suggestive of;

1) Hemorrhoids

2) Diverticulosis.

The treatment of hemorrhoids is by warm sitz bath, avoiding straining, keeping the stools soft and local application of the ointment like Proctosedyl or Preparation-H. Following is the detailed advisory;

1) Avoid constipation by not postponing the urge to defecate; Many over-the-counter options help speed bowel movements and decrease strain. Duphalac is best. A soft stool helps in decreasing the irritation and associated swelling of hemorrhoids.

2) Eat a balanced, high-fiber diet; Increased dietary fiber of 25-30 grams/day. High-fiber cereal can help reach this goal quickly.

3) Drink plenty of water and liquids (about 2 liters a day)

4) Regular exercise; helps in relieving constipation if any.

5) Avoid excessive pressure and straining during defecation. Don't sit for extended periods, limit this time as much as possible.

6) Avoid irritant foods, chilies, and hot herbs and substances.

7) Warm sitz baths; this is universally soothing and may help decrease the hemorrhoid size. This is done thrice a day for a couple of days and then twice a day (15 minutes each time).

8) Local ointments applied in the anal canal which contains lidocaine and vasoconstrictors (OTC product).

You may take oral probiotics which will help in diverticulosis also.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

To come back positiv

The FIT test does not diagnose cancer.

It just warrants colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. Diverticulosis, polyp colon can cause positive FIT test.

I had internal haemorrhoids thrombosis still at the time test
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Thank you so much for reassuring me i will not rate your services full mark . I have been so worried i haven’t slept panicking

You are very welcome.

As mentioned a couple of times above positive FIT, the test does not mean cancer.

Thrombosed internal hemorrhoids can cause a positive FIT test.

There is nothing to worry about just by the FIT test.

Your anxiety is unnecessary.

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.

It was a pleasure to assist you.

I sincerely hope that I have helped you and that I have earned my 5-star rating today!

Thank you.

Stay blessed.

I would appreciate if you could please put my mind at ease and address my questions when you are back on line thank you . Monica Scotland

Hello Monica,

Colonoscopy is routinely advised for these symptoms and that does not mean cancer. It is according to the guidelines for the investigative work up.

Internal hemorrhoids can cause your symptoms.

Dr Arun i appreciate you given meThis advice you are a good doctor
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
When I worry it causes insomnia so I don’t sleep well when I don’t worry less stressed I sleep better

There is a brain-gut connection so stress anxiety can cause alteration in bowel movements.
