Re.: bleeding from anus.
This is more a new contribution than an answer. I'm unsure of how else to add to this thread.
My wife's bleeding seems random unaffected by consistency of stool.
She does not suffer from cancer but a hereditary neurology and is now wheelchair dependent, hence she now has type 2 diabetes as she can't exercise.
I am new to healthboards.com so I did try searching the 'bowel disorder' thread but it is huge, including sleepless items. Can't the search engine be more focussed?
Over the last two weeks my wife has had serious bleeding from, we think, her anus. Most times there is no stool, just blood, but often the blood is so dark it is difficult to tell. Toilet pper is stainedbright red when incidents happen.
The problem is intermittent, sometimes no blood at all.
It is hard for my wife to transfer to an examination 'table' so often never gets a full exam when visiting doctor or consultant. Although the idea of sitting in a warm bath of water would appeal we don't have a bath just a 'wet' room in which my wife uses a shower chair. She can't shower unaided.
I am my wife's full time carer, although she has another in the morning to give her a shower and get dressed.
