I am a male, aged 44. Had gas/acidity problems last year. Saw a gastroenterologist. Endoscopy revealed "antral gastritis". Took medicines & got cured. Used to have fresh blood in stool at times. Gastro doc referred me to see a Surgeon early this year (Jan/Feb) whose diagnosis was "small haemorrhoids & anal fissures". Said no urgency for surgical operation. Prescribed anovate cream & mild laxatives - which I took for some days. I was OK for several months ever since and thought the problem had fully healed. But now - after a week's bout of constipation - suddenly there's "bleeding" while passing bowels - fresh bright red blood either dripping or as streaks on stool - especially when I'm trying to strain. Stool's normal yellow colour & blood not mixed with stool. What's could be the problem? Haemarrhoids again ? Should I see the doctor again ?
