I have no insurence so currently can not go to the doctors. What could this be, do I have to go in NOW, is this ok to wait?

Yesterday I started having loose stool, and there is blood present. After reading some website that described what I had, I can describe it a little better.

Its loose, and the blood is in SOME of it, not all. It is bright red, fresh blood, and it isnt IN, but almost ON it... Doesnt seem to be throughout it. It tinges the water.

I know this is gross, but I am to embarrassed to go in :( Im a baby when it comes to this stuff.

Does anyone know what would cause it to be like this? Ive had loose stool for 2 days now. Thanks!

  • I wouldn't wait to go to the Dr. A friend of my sister had bloody stool waited 6 months to go to the Dr and now has stage 3 colon cancer. She's still hanging in there, but had she gone sooner she would have better chances. Better to be safe than sorry...even if you don't have insurance.
