TMI- pooping blood for 10 days now, any idea why?

Red blood, and a few clots. Its coming from my bowels, but bleeds with or without a bowel movement. I sat down just to pee and i relaxed enough I guess and it just started bleeding. It is a fast flow of blood- and when I wipe theres a lot of blood.

I've been having abdominal pains for over two months- sharp and sudden, like when you have diarrhea, only I dont have diarrhea. The bleeding stops when Im not going to the bathroom, perhaps because the muscle is so tight? But I have had a few spots of blood in my underwear.

I have a constant rectal pressure, like I need to go, even after I have gone. I have gone to the E.R and they said it isnt hemrhoids, and I scheduled a Colonoscopy but I cant get in until July 12th.. any ideas what this could be?

  • I agree with GavinsMommii. I would not wait until the 12th and I think you need to see a specialist or different doctor immediately. This sounds very serious. It is never a good think when you are pooping blood...let alone the way you described.

  • That does not sound good. I would go back to the dr and get a second opinion. That sounds very serious.

  • You should put a call into the doctor that scheduled the colonoscopy.  If this was going on when you saw the doctor and he scheduled the colonoscopy he must not have thought is was an emergency. If this has gotten worse since you saw him you should do something soon it doesn't sound good.

  • red blood or darker almost black blood?

    the color of the blood will tell you roughly where in the digestive tract it's coming from. darker means closer to the stomach end, redder means closer to the anus.

  • I worked in nursing at a nursing home and I can say that if this were happening to one of my patients I would speak to the Dr. immideatly. Don't wait because this sounds really bad. Hopefully it's not, but better to be safe then sorry. I mean who knows, you could have internal bleeding.
