Earlier in 2014 I had blood drip into the toilet from my rectum. It was scary but I thought it was just a hemorrhoid even though it took a while for the bleeding to stop.

Re: Still NED!!!!

The anti-spasmodic at higher dosage hasn't really helped with the cramping. I haven't had another episode of horrible cramping and bleeding.(ischemic colitis) I don't know if the aspirin is helping or not.

Re: Young person struggling to schedule a colonoscopy

I'm sorry you're going through this!*hugs* When you see the other doctor I would insist on a referral to a gastroenterologist. I would also insist on a colonoscopy so you can find out what's going on.*hugs* Good luck.
