Hemorrhoid bleeding

i was using icepack to reduce discomfort but suddenly it started to  bleed a lot (never happened this to me before). Anyway, next morning I went to emergency and doctor told me that I am not bleeding from rectum but my hemorrid has damaged. He recommended to put pads and it will go away soon. But it is the 3rd day now but I still see bloods on my pad. Not sure when will my bleeding will stop or should I go back to hospital. Any suggestion? Thanks for your support.

If it's bleeding significantly, you should go back to the doctor.  If it's a few drops of bright red blood, especially when you use the bathroom, it's probably just the hemorrhoids.  You may want to make an appointment with your doctor or a colon/rectal specialist to see what your options are.  In the meantime, you may want to apply some witch hazel, which should help with both the pain and the bleeding.
