Bowel bleeding with pain
My partner`s bowel problem, every time he goes to a toilet is a painful moment for him, sometime it nothing but only a endless pain down in bowel or with blood, that it worried me. What can we do?
It's tough to say without more information. What you describe is consistent with a fissure, but it could be caused by many other things. A thorough exam is in order, and may best be done by a specialist in proctology. Find one at http://www.fascrs.org/.
