aspirin & plavix effect on GI bleeding
i am heart patient , 36 male . I had AMI & 1*DES put in my artery .
i am taking 1aspirin & 1plavix since over a year
now .  2 days back i saw red bright blood in my stool after which i did not take aspirin & plavix & went to my cardiologist who in turn introduced me to the GI specialist .
the GI specialist said it's hamerrhoids & gave me supposedries for 7 days & also said i can continue the aspirin & plavix .  i went back home & took the aspirin & plavix which was a bad move . within 2 hours i bled a lot of blood with watery diarhhea & i had to rush to ER bcoz i started feeling weak . stayed overnight with IV..etc. & now feeling a bit better .

question : if aspirin or plavix can cause such harsh bleeding , then isn't the GI supposed to so stop it for few days ?

also now that aspirin is not working for me... what do i do next  coz i surely cannot ignore that my heart needs blood thiners ?

pls advise me.. i am very confused now .
