Anyone had bleeding after a colonoscopy - not related to a bowel movement?
When I had my first colonoscopy, about a week later, I had bleeding with a couple of BMs, but nothing in between, and it stopped.
This time, I was in the store, shopping, when I spontaneously started bleeding. I went home, and found my underwear soaked in blood, and several clots (sorry, TMI!) For the next couple of hours, every time I checked, there was more blood. Not as much as 1/2 cup at a time, that my GI dr said to watch for, but it was continuous.
So I did go to the ER, but after a 2 hour wait, and being told that it may be another 2-3 hours before I was seen, AND the bleeding had stopped - I came home. I promised to come back if the bleeding started again.
My colonoscopy was 5 days ago. My stomach is crampy, but I had no fever when they checked me. Other than calling the GI dr in the morning, any other thoughts? Is this normal?
