Re: Fibro and Rectal Bleeding
You might have "fissures" in your rectum. Especially if there is a family history of rectal bleeding. And if this is the case, nothing will show up as abnormal on your colonoscopies. It just happens that occasionally, the rectal wall will tear, by an especially bad bout of constipation, or from straining too hard, or a lot of stress in your life. It is not a really serious thing, but can be VERY frightening when it happens. You might look into this possibility with your gastroentologist.
I have it, as does my older brother, and my father had it really bad. I am not by any means a medical doctor, but rectal bleeding is something I live with, and my colonoscopy as well as the several that my brother had, and the many my father had, were all normal as well.
This would indicate that maybe, this may be the case with you as well. This also seems to be common among Native American peoples. We (my family and I) have a lot of native blood in us.
