Yesterday I joined the bright red blood rectal bleeding club!
I went to the bathroom and was horrified to see blood in the toilet and on the paper (first time this has ever happened). Went straight to the urgent care doctor who did a rectal exam and found a hemorrhoid which she said could absolutely be the cause of the bleeding. I now have general achiness over my entire abdomen but I had a clean colonoscopy less than 2 years ago (no polyps, only mild diverticulosis) so I'm not too worried about anything sinister.
My question is if I should add Miralax to my daily routine of Metamucil, water, salads...etc. (I didn't think to ask this at my appt) I thought I was doing so well but over the last 2 weeks I had a day when I got some great news followed by some awful news and it sent my GI system into utter chaos. I believe I have been somewhat constipated lately which has caused my current situation.
Anyone take BOTH Miralax and Metamucil and, if so, how much and for how long? The Miralax instructions say for max of 7 days.
