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 had it strength. My colonoscopy showed no evidence of my cancer coming back. That's what my GI told me. I have quite often dealt with hemorrhoids or tears. With the tears I will have some blood on the paper when I wipe and it burns a little. I've never had some blood floating in the water nor more blood on the paper I had put in the toilet bowl. I have an anal skin tag which I think causes issues too.
