Blood in stools everyday, upper GI clear. Colonoscopy to remove polyps done recently. Next step?

Hi I have been experiencing blood in my stool for several months almost every day. It is a substantial amount of bright red blood. I am 46 yrs old male. My stool has an inconsistent consistency from constipation to extremely soft and narrow (which is more likely). I recently had a colonoscopy which showed some polyps which were removed. I was hoping this would stop the bleeding but it did not. I also had an upper GI done as well but nothing showed on that either. I am very concerned about my health! What should I do now?

if there are only few polpys in colon which were removed still bleed persists unlikely the source is colonic likely you could have piles or a small chronic fissure which is bleeding dont strain for stools get a good proctoscopic examination done so look for these
also why did you get ur upper gi endoscopy done is still not clear
get a stool examination done to look for RBC Pus cells if normal unlikey that your bleed is colonic
relax possibly you could just have an irritable bowel
hope this answers your query
please do reply in case of any further questions
wish you a speedy recovery
