Falling off the cliff again--rectal bleeding Need help!
« on: February 04, 2014, 09:55:52 AM »
I have had rectal bleeding before, and realized I have had hemorrhoids. A few months ago I had a horrible infection with lots of blood and cramping. I went to a GI and she recommended a sigmoidoscopy. She wanted my infection to pass so I had the scope a few months after the infection.

The sigmoidoscopy came back clear and showed an internal hemorrhoid as well as having some external ones. My stools managed to become normal after this. However, my stools are flattish and mushy again. I also had bright red blood this morning. I'm a mess. I'm so, so scared.

Help me, please.

My GI physician told me not be concerned about the shape of the stool, such as pencil thin,
mushy, flat, etc. You could call your GI physician and explain your symptoms and concerns.

I'm sure it's your internal Hem. If you had a clean scope you are fine.

Thanks! I'm hoping that is what it is as well. My flex sig was right after Christmas and it was perfectly clear. I'm in a panic with the what ifs, but trying to temind myself I'm ok.

I appreciate both of your thoughts.
