If you don’t have piles. You should definitely see a doctor as you shouldn’t have blood in your stools. Hope this helps.

See your doctor. Could be SIBO. Antibiotics will clear it up. I get this. You will probably also need a colonoscopy to rule out other possible causes. I have telangectasia in my colon which can bleed sometimes. xx

Thank you, I didn't even think about the telangectasia , I bet that's it those spots are everywhere in my mouth and hands and I have varices in my tummy and esophageal varices that have to be banded every 9 months. Your reply was most helpful to explain the bleeding. Hugs

Glad to help. This disease is so complicated. Unfortunately, the only way to know for sure what is causing the bleeding is by colonoscopy. I absolutely hate them too! You can have a breath test done to diagnose SIBO, but would need a gastro referral for that. Hugs to you too x

SIBO stands for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. It is caused by poor gut motility - food moves through your system slowly so, because it is hanging around longer, bacteria can form in your small intestine, causing cramping, mucous and an upset stomach. Hope that helps. X

I have motility issues..I'm not to bad the test showed 60% thank you

See your doctor as soon as possible. We all need to remember that although we have scleroderma, not everything is down to scleroderma and blood in stools is never a good sign.

Thank you. I saw my dr he says it's constipation from the pain meds and the pain is from my liver which is causing me pelvic congestive syndrome. I thought constipation meant you couldn't use the bathroom but be said hard stools are constipation so ? He wants to do a colonoscopy I don't want one if those, the prep is way too hard on my body, I shake really bad and get so cold it brings me to tears. Seriously think I'll skip that. Since they did a cat scan I think that would show any tumors or such thing. Thank you for replying this support group means so much to me.

I had to have a colonoscopy a few months back and I agree with you on the pre prep. is horrible to take...I was up the whole night after taking it and still was 'clearing out' my bowel in the morning afte having no sleep and almost the whole night in the toilet. Went to the hospital and was shaking and crying -felt like a big baby for the way it was affecting me...and the nurses were so kind and sympathetic which made me feel worse for how I was behaving but I honestly could not help it...I am usually so strong but this had worn me down and out...I was asked if I would like to leave and go home but I decided that I had gone through all that trauma would be for nothing so I went through with it and although it was uncomfy and invasive ...I did it and felt so much better when it was all over. I am just praying that I will never have to have this examination again. It was all okay on the results thank goodness! So, just for anyone else facing this yucky exam...for peace of mind and a lot of toilet time, just do it as you never know what might happen if you don't.
