  • I would get a second opinion. I never had blood in my stool at that age.

  • since you said all around it i wonder....have you been constipated, or has it been diffucult to have a bowel movement? it may just be causing little tears in the skin which will cause bleeding. what color is it? if its bright red, its prob tears, but if its dark red like almost blackish then its internal. i say if its the skin tearing than get some stool softeners and see what happens if its the other get another opinion!

  • has your dr discussed the color and so forth? i still wanna say bright red is like a skin tear. have you recently had a baby? really though, if you're not satisfied with your dr you need to find another opinion. what confuses me is him saying normal for your age. i think thats what bothers me the most.
