This is the first time this has happened and I have not been to the restroom again since it happened. It was just this afternoon. When i wiped I noticed a bright red blood, and i examined my stool and there was a small red streak going down the side of it. Please help. Thank you

  • I just had my colon and rectum removed on 10/9/06. I had Ulceritive Colitis for 5 1/2 years. It started out just as quickly and very similar to how you described! Go to the doctor right away. It could be minor or something much more serious!!

Is there a chance it just kind of tore me a little bit. I sure hope so.
