Flat Stools. Hemmoroids(hemorrhoids)?

I had a colonoscopy last year and everything turned out fine. Was told i had severe Diverticulitis.

I had my gall bladder removed and, if I don't constanty eat fiber, then my bowel movements are usually an adventure.

I've always had hemmoroids (hemorrhoids) problems. Occasional bleeding, etc..

I usually just deal with it, etc.. The last few days I've had a pretty bad hemorrhoid attack, some bleeding, burning, stinging when I have a bowel movement and my stools have been flat (is that normal with a bad hemmoroid attack).

My stools are only flat when I have a bad attack. Usually they are normal.

Is there anything I can do, naturally do relieve this?

I know i should change my diet, etc..

But this is just getting old.

My G.I. told me last year to come back in 7 years to get another colonoscopy.

I'm just curious if anyone else goes through this same thing.

If the hemorrhoids swell they can cause flat stool.  But I'm surprised your doctor hasn't removed them since they are so bad.  It's easily done. There is Prep H to shrink them and Cortizone 10 cream to aid in healing, soreness and itching.  Keeping plain ole vaseline on the area helps a lot also.  If your stool is flat only during this time, I wouldn't worry, but if the bleeding increases and flat stools become more frequent, I'd go back to your GI.  Hope this helps.
