| | Weightlifting & Bloody Stools
I have blood in my stool. Not much blood, just red swaths on the actual stool. I have yet to have a colonoscopy or some of the other tests that are typically run in such a situation. In the meantime, a pharmacist told me that weightlifting can cause strain in the colon area, which can cause fissures or wounds which can bleed, etc. Has anyone had experience with blood in their stools that a doctor has attributed to lifting weights? Anyone know the solution to such a situation? I'm not really interested in giving up the weight lifting.
