Serious *graffic* Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnossed as at age of 15, im 29 now, truley gluten free 10 years, besides cross contamination. Ive recently have had rectal bleeding after stool. I simply dont have any more money to spend on doctors at this time. I want to know if anyone has problems passing stool and experiances rectal bleeding. I really hope its just a hemroid, but its been 3 months now with red blood on my toilet paper after wiping. ANY advice would be great!

There are just some things that you need to see a doctor for, and rectal bleeding is one of them. I understand money is an issue, but I implore you to use any and all resources available to you in your area, beg, borrow, steal, whatever it takes to get that looked at.  This is definitely an issue other than Celiac disease.  It sounds like you may have either bad hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, but the only way to tell is to have a doctor look at it because there are other more serious things that can cause you to have blood when you pass stool.  If you can definitely tell that it is coming from the immediate area and not elsewhere, especially if there is a painful spot somewhere on the exit point, then that points to a fissure, and a doctor would be able to tell immediately upon a glance if that were the case.  You can do an internet search on that for more info.

 

But seriously, you can even go to the ER and they can't turn you away, and get a medical exam.  You want to rule out anything serious before it gets more serious.  Even a simple hemorrhoid issue or anal fissure can develop into a serious problem needing surgery if not treated correctly.

Hi gfplumber, Welcome.

 

Laura has given you the advice you need for your issue.  Hospitals all have financial aid available there are free clinics that cover most areas.  I would also urge you to seek medical attention.  Anal fissures usually get infected because of there location.  And Hemorrhoids usually get worse and worse and can really effect your quality of life. 

 

Good luck to you.

 

Colleen

I agree with getting it checked out. I have been checked out and they didn't find anything except hemorrhoids. The doctor didn't give me any suggestions but eat more fiber which doesn't work for me. My suggestion while waiting for an appointment is make sure your stools are soft. I accomplish this with using Miralax. The best thing I have discovered is using witch hazel pads after a bowel movement. I have not had any bleeding in over 2 months. Hope it works for you.

I would get it checked out.

 

My husband had these symptoms and went in for a colonoscopy.  A large polyp was found and removed.  He has been going in once a year and having a polyp removed for 3 years now.  *These symptoms are NOT typical for a polyp.  It is most likely a hemorrhoid.  The really lucky thing was, he went in for these symptoms and was able to stay cancer free by having the polyp removed ~ well before the age 50 suggested time for colonoscopy.

 

Your body is telling you something is wrong, so get it checked out.
