My 7 year old son has been having bloody stool and nausea for well over a month now. His Dr. sent him to a specialist who ordered a colonoscopy and endoscopy and some other tests. They found something during the colonoscopy and when they tried to scrape it for biopsy it cause my son to hemorrhage. After spending the next 24 hours in ICU they ran many tests, x-rays and blood work. We went to see the specialist to discuss the results and she told us everything looked good. When I questioned the colonoscopy results first she said it was clear and when I questioned her about finding something in his colon (I had the pictures from the procedure) she said she wasn't sure what it was but hopes that it flushed itself out when he hemorrhaged. We are still waiting on some blood tests but other than that we were dismissed. He still has bloody stools and nausea (go figure) I would like to get a second opinion but She is the only pediatric GI specialist in our area. I asked my regular pediatrician to review the results but he only received test and x-ray results, no colonoscopy. Has anyone else had similar symptoms and did they just disappear on their own? I find it hard to believe that whatever it was just flushed itself out. I'm very worried, I think we may travel a few hours to see another specialist
