I am a 23 years old guy, I consider my self fit yet slightly overweight. for the past 6 months I've had a variety of symptoms, most important ones where visible amount of mucus and streaks of blood on my stools, also some change in my stools thickness.
I've had a colonoscopy on the 31st of last month, my doc told me that he found two unusual growths in my colon, removed them and took some for the lab to test for a tumor. after two weeks the test showed that I had two polyps, one of them is benign. during those two weeks I did not feel any different tbh, the blood was gone, but I didnt get it all the time.
the third week I started feeling better, no bloating, my stools seemed thicker, everything was ok, so I started hitting the gym again.
two days ago, I felt weird after lunch I went to the bathroom and hmy stools had blood on one side, not a little, not a streak, half of it were coated in it, I went later that day at dinner and found none, now I am having streaks of blood.
I've already called my doc this morning, he cant see me until the 11th of june so I left him a message to call me back, am confused, has anyone went through this?
