  1. Chronic Anal Leakage

    I am new to the forum and am also having anal leakage issues. I have a hemorroid that is painful and sometimes bleeds. I was wondering if your leakage had a color to it... I don't want to sound gross, but mine ranges from pink to brown to white, and lately a green color (similar to something I would expect from my nose with a bad sinus infection...) I have heard of mucous, but colored like that? Also, what exactly was your experience with your fistula?
  2. I have a question concerning the endoscopy for diagnoses. My gastroenterologist did a couple different blood and stool tests about two weeks ago. The only test that came back positive was the one for celiac (Iwant to say out was a tTg test) which level was 6 and mine read 9.3. Family it's pushing for an endoscopy; however, I have a real problem with having to east gluten again before testing. I have lost over 20lbs in the last month, am unable to work or take care of myself or my kids 3-4 days out of the week. I am very weak, dizzy, and have bone/muscle pain everyday. Chronically constipated most of my life and now, suddenly having looser bowls than ever. Not sure what to eat, because most things, even water sometimes causes cramping. Oh yes, and one of the most uncomfortable symptoms is a bleeding, swollen hemorroid... Please help. I will love to have any advise or insight. I can't keep going on like this. Thank you, Mariah
