Hi Hukleberrie, welcome back...I'm sorry you're having blood in your stools though! While blood is never "normal," some causes of it are more benign than others. An internal hemorrhoid would certainly cause bleeding, as would external hemorrhoids. Has anyone given you any rectal suppositories for your hemmies in the past?
