Question:

What was the diagnosis of blood in the stool? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Woman, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: May 08

I am faced with total and complete disregard for the blood in my stool and the large clots, and I have been told to live with it. Go figure. I live and breathe to tell the story.

Comment from: Tom T, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: February 28

I am 71 years old and less than 2 months ago I had a successful colonoscopy. The past two bowel movements I had a fair amount of bright red blood on the toilet paper. My fecal material appeared to not be mixed with blood. I am wondering what the cause might be! Over the years I have experienced some bright red blood on the toilet paper from minor hemorrhoids but, not had near the volume of blood that I have had on the last two bowel movements.
