Tagged: #blood in stool


I had been seeing bright red blood in my stools for between four and six weeks before I saw a doctor.  

Because a similar thing had happened after my children (now four and six years old) were born, the experience wasn’t totally unfamiliar to me.  I felt otherwise OK and my energy levels were normal. Nothing felt unusual or different.

I had a sigmoidoscopy on my doctor’s orders on 19 April 2010 and they found a growth which they biopsied.
