Feeling a bit apprehensive at the moment, following increasing difficulties passing stools and increasing bowel pain (and a history of this), im on my period and passed a lot of blood from my bowels today, and i dont mean with a bowel movement. i mean im just bleeding for no reason from my bowel. Bit scared as the time this happened i collapsed and ended up needing two emergency blood transfusions, surgery (though to this day no one will tell me what happened in theatre) and was in hospital for a week. im worried, but i dont see the point in going to a and e as the bleeding was much worse last time and despite passing blood every few minutes last time and despite being directly admitted to the ward (it was only 3 days after a surgery) they left me for 8 hours sat in a chair waiting to be seen until i passed out and woke up with tubes everywhere coming out of me. spent a further two days with what i can only describe as a giant nappy and regularly using the bed pan (so humiliating) continuing to bleed for 2 days until they decided i should be taken back into theatre. i just wonder whats the point in asking for help when this is the response. the bleeding stopped after theatre last time although they claim they found nothing did nothing. it magically stopped. to this day its unexplained 3 years later but now im worried again. i have a GP appointment tommorow so hopefully nothing bad happens before then. I really need to see someone who cares enough to find out why this is happening to me. Thank you to all the girls for the recommendations for local private consultants. looks like i need to get onto this sooner rather than later...its so hard trying to sort all this out when work are on my back piling the work on and not remotely sympathetic. if i tell you my boss called me in hospital to tell me if i wasnt back in X number of days she would dock my pay and suspsend my job...it seems that no one (apart from my family and you lovely ladies) is at all supportive. my friends are to some extent but they dont really understand because they see me still living my life even though im struggling. i still work and im studying. they dont know how i do it. i dont know how i do it...i often think i cant keep doing this. i really hope it gets easier. does anyone else actually have bowel bleeding? it just strikes me that its something to be really concerned about and yet my GP and consultant are not...? i know this is kind of related to my previous post on the bowel, but now im bleeding im more concerned than ever...why are there so many medical professionals that just dont care?? it makes me really sad when i read everyone s stories and so many of us are going through this.
