The two most common causes of bright red blood in your stool are anal fissures and internal hemorrhoids...
I am 29 years old and been having my stool getting constantly narrowed to the point its pensil thin. I was having rectal bleeding for 6 months and I was finally got a colonoscopy on Feb 4 but then I got to go to another province for work . Now finally got a colonoscopy coming next week Wednesday. I know you guys are not doctors. But can you tell me other than cancer what else can cause this issue. I just want to be prepared.... Thank you

Because I don't want to have issues when I am in flight? Do you get bowel movements very fast after taking the medicine or does it take time?

People who have had certain types of polyps removed during a colonoscopy:
Most of these people will need to get a colonoscopy again after 3 years, but some people might need to get one earlier (or later) than 3 years, depending on the type, size, and number of polyps.
