Re: 30 and scared

I'm sorry you're going through this.*hugs* Maybe you could be put on a cancellation list so you could be seen sooner. I hope you get answers. I know what it's like to have long waits for appointments. I would definitely stay away from Google.

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

Thank you beach sunrise! I will update when I know more. No, my GI hasn't called and I doubt he will call anytime soon because he believes everything is just IBS. I had an ischemic colitis attack with some bleeding in March and went to the ER. My GI didn't call until October. Thank you for the infor...

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

I had fasted for 12 hours before my blood tests yesterday. The blood tests check my thyroid, electrolytes, blood counts, iron, liver and kidneys. My doctor didn't put stat on the blood tests and it takes 7 to 10 days for results. I hope the results will be sooner because I would like to know somethi...

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

I had an ischemic colitis attack on Friday. It was without bleeding. Usually after an Ischemic attack I have cramping, , bloating, and gas for only a few days. This time it has lingered. I went back to eating twice with a liquid lunch. Today even the Boost plus calories is bothering me. I get nauseo...

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

Yes, for some reason it entered strength. I did mean stretch. It was an awful experience because it was done via sigmoidoscopy without sedation. My GI's office hasn't called. His receptionist usually will call to give me a date and time that he will call me. He usually doesn't take me seriously sayi...

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

I'm hoping that my GI will order more testing. Maybe he will want to do a colonoscopy. None of my doctors are examining me in person. I don't have the report from my colonoscopy. All I know is that my GI said it was normal. He said that everything around the anastomosis site was fine. In the past I ...

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

Thank you for the information. The reason I am concerned about my weight loss is because when I look in the mirror I can easily see my rib cage front and back(I can count my ribs), I can see the bones in my back, and the bones in my shoulders. I have loose skin. I think I am continually losing weigh...

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

I called my Gi's office and his receptionist said he was in tomorrow and she would let him know. I mentioned the weight loss, hair loss, feeling full quickly, more cramping, and the rectal bleeding.

Re: Rectal bleeding(Maybe a tear or hemorrhoid)

Thank you Lee, Punky and beach sunrise! :) I hope so too. It wasn't a huge amount of blood. It just had me a little concerned because back at the beginning of 2014 I had blood dripping into the water that wouldn't stop for a few minutes. My doctor said hemorrhoid. Then in October of that year I had ...
