Hi. I'll get right into it. 3 months ago I started seeing blood in my stool so I made an appointment with my doctor who did a rectal examine and found no hemorrhoids. I am have an appointment for a colonoscopy soon but just recently have had almost no BMs for 7 days and when I do they are covered in bright red blood and have this stringy pus all over them. What could this possibly be?
Along with the blood I have experienced severe pain and cramping, fatigue, chills, pain with BMs as well as painful intercourse, also am having a hard time emptying my bladder all the way. My doctor is also sending me to obgyn for endometriosis (not positive). Could the endo be causing all of these GI problems?
Please help me. I'm pretty scared about all of this.
Thank you!
