Constipation, and pain in gallbladder area.


Pain in Stomach and gallbladder area, with constipation.

Mucus in stool and the occasional blood.

Had many blood tests, colonoscopy, stool test and just had ultrasound that found polyps in gallbladder.

Would like peoples to see my stool to see if anyone has had similar symptoms.

It seems you don’t chew enough. Do you have dental problems.

Hello Secka ,Thanks for posting, sorry to hear what you are experiencing.

What has your doctor said is the next step? Did you have any polyps in your colon or anything in your colon that was concerning to your doctor?

Any information you can provide as far as what the tests showed (or did not show) can help us direct you to resources.

Hi Nicole,Colonoscopy was clear about 18months ago.

The only thing with blood tests was i had slightly high bilirubin and i think this was around 33. No big gallstones found only the polyps.

A little background on whats happening or happened to my body.

Ive had a fungal infection for about 8 years now, but i have been tested for candida and clear.


Pain under right and left rib

Lost about 5kg but holding weight, now.

Milk or cheese clogs me up and also fried food

Very small amount of blood on stool

Yellowish mucus on stool

Frequent nose bleeds from the right nostril

Thank you for the message!

Hi Secka ,

When did you last see a specialist, and were your other tests (blood, stool, ultrasound, etc.) also 18 months ago?

If you aren't currently seeing a specialist, I would recommend that you reach out. Depending on COVID, they may start with a video or phone consultation but that would be a good start if you aren't currently under active care of a specialist.

Eight years with a fungal infection - I wonder if any medication or treatment that you are on for the fungal infection could be impacting your GI system?

Also would recommend that you see either a general practitioner or an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor regarding the nose bleeds to rule out anything serious.

Before you speak to your doctor, be sure to have written down a list of all medications that you are currently taking, including over-the-counter medications and supplements. Often, patients with GI issues will also keep a food journal to track food and beverage intake, bowel movements, any pain or bleeding, etc. This could be useful information for your doctor. Additionally, it could show you a pattern (for instance, possibly being lactose intolerant, if you experience diarrhea after eating dairy).

It sounds like you have a pretty good sense of what causes you issues, but sometimes keeping a journal for a few weeks can show patterns that we weren't previously aware of - and also give your doctor clues to things that we non-doctors wouldn't even notice or think could be causing an issue.

Good luck - and please contact your doctor(s) if it has been some time since you are still experiencing symptoms.

Hello, so do you intend to go and do more tests?

Are you going for tests? Or there changes to your stools like getting better

Ultrasound was last week and found polyps.Ive been tested for celiac and all blood tests were normal apart from 33 bilirubin, this was in thr last 6 months.

Doctor has told me my referral has been rejected by the gastroenterology department because my symptoms aren't severe enough, i suppose i have to wait until it kills me first before someone takes a look at me, thats the nhs for you!
