Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
Presence of Blood in stool(poop) in not normal and there should be some pathological condition for it which should be diagnosed and treated.
For the diagnosis of bleeding per rectum proctoscopic as well as colonoscopic examination is required. So consult a surgeon for the same.
Best wishes for your health.

Hi! Last June I had a perianal abcess, drained and packed. 4 weeks later it healed. A week after it healed I went to hospital feeling generally very unwell, I also had stomach cramps, high temprature, constipation, feeling faint and I had lost 2 stone in weight. I was addmited to hospital, the next day I had a CT scan. The scan showed that my bowel was very inflamed, and that the lymph nodes in my abdoman were enlarged aswell. The consultant thought it may be Crohn's. A few days later it was decided that I should have a sigmoidoscopy. Before the sigmoidoscopy the consultant came and asked me about my sexuality, Im gay. He suggested that it could be a sexual transmitted infection, (LGV). Even though I didn't think it was a sti, as I know what I have and have not done, which I did explain.

The sigmoidoscopy showed colitis and proctitis. The consultant wanted me to have test done to see if it was a sti and I was perscribed 3 weeks course of doxcycline, I was discharged from hospital.

Two weeks later I went to get the results of my sti tests, all came back negitive. I hadn't felt any improvment, but instead of having constapation I was now having Diahorrea up to 10 times a day. I also started getting alot of noise from my stomach (gurgling noises).

The consultant sent me for a colonoscopy and gastroscopy. The colonoscopy still showed signs of inflamation but not as bad as when I was in hospital. The gastroscopy biopsi showed that I had helicobactor. So I was perscribed treatment for this. The consultant then sent me for a MR scan, it showed my lymph nodes in abdoman had reduced and also the bowel inflamation had reduced.

At this moment in time I still don't feel any major improvment. Im still getting stomach cramps, diahorrea has gone down to 2 to 3 times a day (diahorrea now since last August), and on a few occasions I feel faint and a bit 'out of it'. By the way I have put the 2 stone in weight back on.

My consultant has been very good at getting me tests ect, but I still have no diagnosis or idea what it is. I would be gratful for any advice you have. Thanks
