Hey there - 34 yr old male
So...roughly about 6 months ago I noticed that I had some bouts of diarrhea, and abdominal pain for which I went to my PCP for. Unrelated to the other symptoms, I developed an abscess on my neck for which my PCP gave me clyndamycin for 2 weeks for. During the next two weeks I had diarrhea pretty hardcore, which is a related side effect of the medication.
My abdominal pain persisted, so my PCP ordered an adnominal ultrasound and CT scan w/ contrast. The only thing they turned up was NAFLD. Colon was fine, no wall thickening...etc. However, about 2-3 months ago I noticed that I was getting some blood on the TP and even a little streaking on my stool, with an intense burn/itch. Both my PCP and colo-rectal surgeon said I have multiple hemorrhoids and a fissure at one point. They've kinda come and gone and the surgeon would like to do surgery on the remaining hemorrhoids, but recommended a colonoscopy first to make sure that the rhoids are not the result of Chrons, IFB or colon cancer.
My stocks are generally good size, good color, a little flatter than normal, but I've noticed that when I strain even a little, they go back to round. My abdominal pain turned out to be an abdominal strain, and in the past month I had a CBC for celiac testing, which showed no anemia. I also do want to add that 8 years ago I had a sigmoidoscopy which came back totally negative.
My question being, at this point, the only thing is that there's occasionally some blood streaking on the TP or stool, and if I go back to the bathroom after a bowel movement and press again the area w/ TP, I do get a little pink blood spot. Abdominal pain is gone, I'm not dizzy, no anemia or weight loss. Outside of touches of diarrhea, I've had good caliber/color stools. My scope is next week - I should be expecting all clear outside of the hemorrhoids right?
I’ve got two little ones 8, & 6 that are my world. All I want is to be able to walk them down the aisle.
