User :   hi wondered if you can help me on sunday ( yesterday ) i went to the toilet and noticed that my stools had blood in it about 1 hour later i went again to check and a small blob of a jelly like substance come out with a bit of blood in it , being worried as you do i went to the hospital to get checked up as doctors were closed , but when i saw the nurse there he done an examination on my stomach and checked my breathing and done a anal examination and told me that it was probably colitis ( inflamed bowl ) and it should clear but to keep an eye on it . Today i went to toilet again and the stools seem to be fine although their was a little strand of blood but very small the rest was fine , i have no pains no sickness no irregular bowl movement , but just wanted a second opinion
