I can't have colonoscopy because I have gone into shock on the table 3 times and almost died. Couldn't complete. New Doctor here wants colonoscopy, but I won't do that. For 6 months, I've had clear blood-tinged serum rectally, 24/7. What could cause that?
Stool cultures neg. Frequent bleeding.
Diarrhea for 25 years, cause unknown, although I've seen many doctors. All that is known is lactose intolerance. This clear blood-tinged serum is new. I had not seen the new GI doctor before and he spent only about 3 minutes with me, only visit, just ordering prep and colonoscopy, even though I told him that I go into shock on the table and cannot have that.
(I am 82 years old and have a pericardial effusion, hypertension, Polycythemia, gout and kidney problems. I don't know why I go into shock trying to have colonoscopy, but am unwilling to do that again.)
What conditions could possibly cause the clear bloody serum or mucus constant discharge? It is profuse.
