Questions and answers on "Blood in stool"

I am 25 years of age, and when I pass wind I sometimes get a brown/yellow jelly like substance coming out and also some blood on the tissue after I have been to the toilet. I have been to my GP already who advised me that its normal to get this jelly substance if im constipated and that the blood was caused by a prominent vein but i m not constipated and have no trouble going to the loo. Any advice on where to go from here would be great Mr Pointer

Thank you for the query.

This jelly like substance is mucus. Every intestinal mucosa cell secretes such mucus so its present is quite normal. But the bowel movement with mucus only is not a normal thing. As well as blood in stool. Such symptoms can be caused by IBS,rectal polyp,...

For last 3 months I wake any time from 4am with gas and sometimes cramping pains and most mornings I need urgent bowel movement as soon as I get up. Movement is always loose and is generally in significant volume, my gut pushes everything out quite forcefully. Often visible pieces of partly-digested food in with it. Am left feeling weak and queasy and have no appetite for food or drink for several hours.

I ve been experiencing streaks of rather bright blood in my stool and also droplets of blood in the toilet bowl. I haven t had any trouble actually going to actually defecate, and the colour of the poo looks as it normally does. I m 18, however I ve had a fairly massive lifestyle change and diet change as I have moved to University and I am fairly un-active as of late, this has been happening for roughly two weeks.

Thank you for the query.
