First-time post, hope this is ok here. (Soz if it's too graphic).
So this Easter weekend I got hit by a stomach bug. No nausea or actual sickness just intense acute diarrhea. Never experienced anything like it before. It lasted 2 days-ish.
I'm back to normal now and eating my usual diet.
However, ever since my bug I now feel totally constipated and only manage to go once a day. I'm used to 2-3 times a day so this is weird to me. Also when I do go the stool has a distinctly more yellow/beige color when it's usually brown. Also, there are a few spots of blood in the small stools that I am passing. I have read that this can be a sign of cancer however its usually dark red, which mine is not. I've read some stuff about it being piles which seems more likely I guess (I hope).
Are these things anything I should worry about? Or is this just my body adjusting still after the bug? (Only been over it for a few days at this point) Should I go to my Doctor?
