Brief Answer:
Needs investigations to detect the cause.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The problem with your bowel and bladder habits could be related to irritable bowel, a side effect of the radiation therapy that you have received or due to a lumbar spine. This can be diagnosed by an MRI of the spine to detect any nerve root compression or cauda equina syndrome.
To detect the cause of blood in the stools, you will have to wait for the colonoscopy results.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

i already had the colonosopy in february so we already have the result
this all came after this examination
could it all be kidneys problems ?
Answered by Dr. Praveen Tayal 17 hours later
Brief Answer:
Kidney problem is less likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
It is good that colonoscopy is normal. A kidney problem is less likely. You can get an MRI done and find out if there is a spine related problem.
Hope my answer is helpful.
