I was feeling fine for a while besides always being constipated.
I went for a colonoscopy back in late June because I was having blood and mucus in my stool.
My colonoscopy came back "normal" and was prescribed to take 1 tablespoon of miralax daily because of constipation.
I'm a very busy person between college and working so I never tried the miralax because I was unsure of what kind of effect it would have on me.
Since then I have been experiencing daily constipation (I have had constipation issues since I was a child), mucus in my stool as always, lower back pain, stomach pain, anal pain (almost like a spasm or sharp stabbing pain), vaginal bleeding after straining for a bowel movement (pap test came back normal), and occasional bloody stringy mucus which is very minimal but it really concerns me because I know that is not normal and something must be wrong. It worries me so much because I have read about tumors and these are the kind of symptoms tumors can bring. I'm so scared because I fear the doctor missed something in the colonoscopy, even though he gave me the pictures. I'm so young (20) and I just want to be able to live a long healthy life. I am making an appointment with my GI doctor hopefully in January. I was okay for a while and now I'm having blood in stool I know that is a really bad sign. Could this just be ibs? Any comments or thoughts are appreciated.
