View Full Version : Blood during bowel movement lots of it

Along with clots. For about the past month. The blood is darker red and there is lots of it and it often comes out at the end of the bowel movement. Anyone ever heard of this? It used to be isolated to just during my periods. Now it's all the time. I just had a colonoscopy in August and he said I had diverticulus disease but I never had this problem until AFTER the colonoscopy. Dawn

Dawn - you do need to see a gastroenterologist and probably repeat the colonoscopy. Keep after it until you find the source of the bleeding. I had a huge prolapse that bled a lot that was missed on at least one colonoscopy because it retracted and didn't come out until I strained and pushed. My bleeding was bright red, and they always said that meant it came from near the end and not to worry. Darker with clots probably means it comes from farther upstream. In either case you need to get help for it.
Best wishes,
