Black/red specks or flakes when wiping

Postby Avh112 » Tue Aug 06, 2019 10:19 pm

Hi sorry if this is the forum for this but I’m really nervous and soliciting feedback. I have a colonoscopy scheduled in 3 weeks but the time to then is driving me crazy. I found a lot of red blood in my stool about 2 weeks ago. Hoping it was from a hemroroid. Been having constipation and thin stools which is one of the bad signs. Now I have these tiny but lots of redish/black flake looking things in my wipe. Like it could be dried blood? For those of you who going through this battle did any of you have some of these symptoms

Thanks in advance

Hang in there until you get the colonoscopy results. I went through this in 2007.
