I was just wondering if anybody else has experienced this.
For the last 5 months I have been experiencing blood in my stool, before each episode occurs I have pain in my abdominal area. I have been to the doctor and have been checked for haemaorrids. My doctor requested a surgical consult but it was refused because of my young age (I live in NZ where the health system is publicly funded) The episodes happen about every two weeks. And lately I have noticed congealed blood and what looks like very small blood stained bits of tissue. The blood is on/in the stools. I have also noticed my short term memory has worsened, as well as my concentration. As an added not I have a 7 month old son, who had a natural birth with no complications, but he did come out the facing the wrong way (not breach).
Does anyone know what could be causing it or how serious it could be?
