ok this is gross, but I just want to know if anyone knows...or can help
I have been sick for a couple days now, and I wasn't eating to much when I was sick, I got sick on tuesday, but still ate dinner that night. I did eat when I was sick just not alot, ok so now i'm feeling alittle better, and I do not have an appetite, its like my stomach doesnt want the food, I force myself to eat at least twice, but just dont feel like eating at all.
ok here is the gross stuff...I have been diagnosed with IBS with constipation, and had to start taking Zelnorm. I use to take laxatives but not all the time, just had a hard time going. Well today I saw blood in my stool, and the 2nd time I went and it was tiny...and skinny, and it has been skinny for like a month, but not like this, it was just weird. I also think i'm bleeding there as well, I dont know...i'm not scheduled for a colonoscopy till April, which isn't to far away. I want to call my gyno so she can do a rectal exam.
I dont know I'm going crazy.

  • make sure you get this colonoscopy.tell the consultant everything you have told us,you are not going crazy.you are right to be concerned about this cluster of signs and symptoms.could you ask for this colonoscopy to be brought foreward? explain why ,and they will respect your reasons.
