Our expert says:
Generally speaking floating stools are an indication that you are eating a lot of so-called insoluble dietary fibre which is an excellent habit to ensure regularity. The size of stools you pass is not important unless the stools are very hard and cause pain when you pass them. To combat such a condition, please click on 'Diet & Nutrition', 'You are what you eat' and 'Healthy colon' to read how to increase your dietary fibre intake and use probiotics to achieve regularity.
Haemorrhoids or piles are either caused by excessive straining to pass stools or exactly the opposite namely excessive diarrhoea. It is important that you ask your medica dr to examine your piles to see if any of them have burst or are bleeding a lot. The doctor will prescribe the correct treatment which can vary from an anal cream to a haemorrhoidectomy.
