IBS and blood in stool

I have noticed lately that I am having a lot of blood when I deficate.

Somtimes I notice a clot or two then nothing but the other day I had some clots and now when I get off the toilet the bowl is bright red.

I am calling my doctor tomorow but in the past he has compleetly blown me off.

I am on lomotil daily for my IBS but I still have flares and other medication hasn't worked. I am worried about the blood because if there is somthing going on there it might me yet another colonoscopy ( I have had 5 in the past 8 years)

Re: IBS and blood in stool

I am having the same thing. At my last colonooscopy which was negative for polyps but positive for IBS and hemmoroids , my GI specialist told me to come back in five years for a follow up colonoscopy. For two weeks I have had excess gas and diarrhea every time I eat. I have made an appointmen with GI doctor although they said I wasn't scheduled for another colonoscopy for another year. I very anxioius and fear I have cancer, however, I read where it takes 3 to 5 years for a polyp to develop and another 5 to turn cancerous. It seems the more I think about it the worse it gets. Any thoughts everyone.
