Brief Answer:
Need to investigate

Detailed Answer:

What you mention about the problem can turn serious. You are passing blood clots via gut. The clots could be due to leaking blood in the lower end of the gut like descending colon, sigmoid colon or rectum.
Sometimes the problem could be simple from fissure to common piles but it needs a detailed investigation like per rectal exam, sigmoidoscopy and if required a lower GI endoscope(colonoscopy).
Your doctor was right in referring your to GI specialist.
Please let me know the details once you are done with the appointment and I can add more lines and inform you much better.

Hi are you here on line at the moment please, as I have my left ovary attached to my sigmoid colon , it acute pain I get, plus it seems to have caused rectal prolapse . As that showed up on barium enema the rectal prolapse. I have waited 7 years for this diagnosis, & 4 months later I am still awaiting to be told if they will do an operation. Most recently i have had large amounts of yellow 2inch bolbs of pus come from inside my bm, it is feeling ulcerated in the sigmoid colon, and this is where this large amount of clear yellowish blobs come from, they are large. The pain requires massive amounts of heavy duty pain patches . I can not go out the house as I cant sit for long or stand. Please can you help me . Thanking you in advance.

Hello Doctor,

For my father aged 64 years, Height 6 ft, weight 80, he is having problems with the bowel movements. So we have done a Videocolonoscopy. In the last two months he has suddenly lost weight. The report is as follows :

Colonoscope passed till sigmoid colon 25cm.

Unable to pass scope beyond due to stricturing lesion.

Circumferential polypoid ulcerated lesion seen with stricturing effect.

Lession is hard to biopsy and friable on cntact.

Multiple biopsies taken

Rectum shows normal mucosa.

Retroflexed exam of rectum is normal


stricturing lesion in sigmoid colon, preventing further passage of scope..

What it could be and what should be our next steps. Please advise.

Is it okay to take a stool softner after coming off a liquid diet if you suspect hernias i also have significant diverticulosis in the sigmoid colon .

Hi , I have diverticulitis and I've been having bloody stools for over 15 days . I went to the ER a couple of days ago , my blood levels were good , no infection, but the blood is very scary to me , not sure how to stop it

doctor1 MD

I am a 23 year old female with periodic blood in the stool on and off over the last 3-4 weeks. Four days ago, I started having heavy amounts of mucous only in a brownish-yellow color and large amounts of gas. Today, I had a white tissue-looking substance with reddish brown specks in it. In the past 6 days, I have had two bowel movements that were thinner than normal. One was accompanied by profuse sweating and abdominal discomfort.

I had colonoscopy done last year, and there were no polyps or tumours. My mother had stage 3 colon cancer in the sigmoid colon at age 35.

Should I be concerned?

doctor1 MD

I had a CT scan and it states that my bladder and seminal vesicles are "Grossly Normal". What is Grossly Normal? How can anything be Grossly Normal?
It also states that there are a few Diverticula from the sigmoid colon but no Diverticulitis. Are these two the same or different?
