my hubby has a torn disk in his back. he was given anti-inflammatory pills and was taking them twice a day as instructed.
during this time, he started having bloody bowl movements every once in a while... we assumed it was due to the pills. so he stopped taking them to see if the bowl problem would stop.
it did......for a little bit.
about 2 mos ago, it started back up. again, it wasn't a daily thing - it just happened every once in a while. i told him he needed to see a colon doctor to check for hemorrhoids.
he did and he had a colonospcy. everything came back fine - no problems at all. that was about a month or so ago.
well today, he had another bloody bowl movement. i'm starting to wonder if he may have an ulcer in his stomach.
will he have to get a scope to see if he has an ulcer? or is there another way to find out? also, do you know if ulcers can cause bloody stool?

my husband had them for about a year here and there and I FINALLY convinced him to see a doctor- turned out he has ulcerative colitis. They did a colonoscopy and his colon looked HORRIBLE- like something was shredding his insides this was about 8 years ago has he been to a specialist?
he did see a colon specialsit in december and she did the colonoscopy.... and it came back clear. perfectly normal colon... that's why i'm thinking it could be stomach related...
