I was feeling fine, but there was quite a bit of blood appearing in my stool - I just put it down to haemorrhoids.
My partner kept telling me to see the doctor, but of course, I did the male thing and ignored her pleas.
After experiencing a bowel motion consisting only of blood, I finally went to the GP.
I was admitted to hospital with heart problems in late December 2011 and needed to have 3 stents inserted. I was admitted again in February 2012, because of more problems.
