My colon muscle does not work. I have to reach in to clear it out and always have blood. The cause of blood I think is from me reaching and bringing the stool out. The sphincter does not work either. I worry about the blood in my stool. Thank you.

All of a sudden I didn't feel well and I went to the bathroom early this morning and my stools were loose but no blood. Now it is bright red and stools are dark.
