One morning on vacation I began drinking rum/coke after drinking all night. That night (July 2) I then noticed blood in my stool for the next three days (Friday night-Monday night). It wasnt really in the water as far as I could tell, just red on the tissue and stool. It was a normal red color like I cut my arm. Obviously the stool looked a little darker. I did not drink any and it went away to the visible eye. Three weeks afterwards I had 5-7 beers and noticed blood in my stool two mornings ater that night, though this time there did not appear to be as much. It went away after a day or so to the viable eye and I have checked daily for 2.5 months and have not seen any, nor have I had any alcohol since then.
I do not have any other abnormal symptoms that I am aware of. Im just really worried and can't sleep and Im hoping I dont have liver damage, and hopefully it was just dehydration or something. I no longer depend on alcohol for anxiety and have lost 40 pounds since then and want to start a new healthy life. I just want to get the worries out of my head first and/or treat my problem.
Thank you for the help. XXXXXXX
My husband who is 45 years old, has noticed blood in this motion earlier today. He has had this happen on a few occasions but this is the first time I’ve seen it and it is quite a lot. Is there cause for concern? I have booked him in to see the GP today, but any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the query.
Noticing blood in the stools is a common problem, the cause may range from harmless conditions like hemmorhoids/piles to serious conditions like cancers,hence this surely needs an evaluation.
The probable causes could be
2.Inflammatory bowel diseases...
