I am a 52 year old woman that had a colon resection surgery 2 years ago. I developed a ventral hernia about a year ago. 4 months ago a had an episode of rectal bleeding for 2-3 days. I saw my doctor who did a colonoscopy which was clear. The bleeding was intermitant for the past 4 months never lasting more then a day or two and never very much blood. Now 4 days ago I am bleeding more and it hasn't stopped.

Tomorrow I will call a doctor. I don't know who to call. I have been searching online for what this might be. I have mild discomfort in my stomach and further south. I feel like crap, tired, weak, etc.
