5 yr old ds has a vein that is sometimes apparent after he has a BM. i still wipe him, so this is how i know. i believe its on the inside of his rectum, because it is sometimes not there. he says it never hurts when he poops and he goes everyday, so i dont think he has constipation issues, though in the past he would only go every other day.
I made an appointment with a gastroentenologist because our family doctor said that because he doesnt seem to have constipation, she wants to make sure its not more serious than a hemrhoid. so now im freaking out and feeling guilty that i didnt take it more seriously when i first noticed it months ago.
has anyone had any experience with this? or thoughts on what it could be? from my instant googling expertise, it could be a serious liver issue.
has anyones child ever had a hemmrhoid that looked like a vein?
