Hi everyone,  I am new to this site about a couple of weeks ago I noticed a sharp pain on my bottom when i would sit for a while or stand.  It also happend when i would have a bowel movement.  I went online and googled my symptoms because i was too ebarressed to ask my Doc.  Hemmis popped up and freaked out.  I got some PH cream, but didnt seem to help.  I got the courage and made a appt, to see my Doc.  I told him my symptoms and said its possibly a internal hemmi.  He prescribed me proctozone hc 2.5 cream and made me collect stool samples and said if there is any blood in my stool, he would recommend me to a specialist.  He mentioned cancer and made me more worried.  Does it sound like it could be?  if not how do i get rid of hemmis? how long do they last? any suggestion would help..... oh i had a lil itch down there not that much, no bleeding and taking avodart for prostatitis. thanks!

mestizo - welcome to the healing well site! Since your doctor recommended a specialist, I'm hoping this doctor does a Flex-sig (lower large intestine scope, no sedation needed) or a colonoscopy (thorough large intestine scope, you're sedated for this one). This way a doctor would rule out cancer and then you could determine what is causing your rectal pain. Just make sure you see the specialist.

I had very mild rectal bleeding that would not go away. It was just always there when I had a bowel movement. I didn't have pain like you're describing. My internist said it was probably a hemmoroid since I had delivered two babies vaginally. I wanted to believe it was that but over time I decided to see my Gastro doctor since I had had a benign polyp several years prior to this bleeding. I'm just glad I called and asked for an appt. He did a Flex-sig and saw my tumor immediately. Not that you have a tumor. But it's just always best to see a colon specialist or Gastroenologist. I shudder to think what would have happened to me had I listened to my internist! I know for a fact my cancer wouldn't have been caught so early.
Marsky/Mary's story.....
- Diagnosed with rectal cancer, April 1999 - Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, given temporary colostomy)
- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day
- On a low residue diet at least 75% of the time
- Takes Colace 50 mg each evening

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!
