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?


please help!

I'm sorry he's having this problem, and I hope you get answers soon! I haven't encountered this problem in any of our young family, but I have had some nasty hemmorhoids and their appearance is pretty unpleasant. While you're waiting for info, take comfort that most times weird stuff is just...weird...and probably nothing serious.

thank you cathlin.  the thing is that we'd rather not go to see a specialist and risk unnecessary procedures that will only stress our son out.  the vein is not visible unless he has just had a bowel movement.  also, im not really understanding our doctors logic of, if my son hasnt been constipated, theres no cause of hemorhoids.  i personally feel that he could have a weak vein, and or when he was younger he wasnt regular by any means, so it couldve been there from a long time ago.  and i recently learned that hemmoroids never actually go away.  just wondering if anyone elses child has had the same thing?
