Flat stools...could they be hemorriods?
About 4 years ago I was bleeding as I made a bowel movement and ended up getting a colonoscopy...result was bleeding was caused by hemorriods/fissure.
However, for the past 2 years roughly, I notice that some of my bowel movements are flat ...about so I decided to see my gastro doctor...he said it was probably my hemorroids, but did not do any tests.
I notice that my flat stools are more frequent, and majority of my bowel movements are flat stools. Maybe 1 out of 20 movements may have some blood...could be from hemorriod...stools are not black.
Also, I dont know if this is related, but when I lie down when I sleep on my left side, i get pain where my left/side part of my back where my kidney would be.
I am 26 yrs old, and no history in my family of colon/rectal cancer...im thinking of going to see my physician to refer me back to my gastro doctor and maybe get another colonscopy.
Do you think they could be hemorriods?
