I have had two colonoscopies, one in 2016 due to blood in stool (detected by a fecal occult blood test). My second one was in March 2017 because of pain and changes in bowel habits, and they just wanted to make sure nothing was missed. Everything was clear except for an internal hemorrhoid and they took biopsies which were normal.
For the past month I’ve been having on and off bleeding. It’s always bright red and I ignored it at first but yesterday morning the whole toilet bowl turned red. However, I went again in the night and there was no blood, which is bizarre. I have made an appointment with my PCP but it’s in another 2 weeks. I’m just wondering if anyone has any experience with this and can give some advice on what to do until then. I’m 18 btw. I’m just confused because I’ve had two scopes done and I highly doubt I’ll be getting another one. But it’s just weird because I’ve never had this much bleeding before.
