Hi, i am 24 now and so over the past year or so I've been having a really gassy belly, kind of really bad but sometimes I can be fine.
It was about a month ago that I went to the toilet, done my poo, and thankfully I forgot to flush the toilet. I went back into the bathroom say 30mins later to tidy round etc.. looked in the toilet bowl and I could see my stool, surrounded by what looked like a sort of cloud of blood which settled on the bottom of the toilet. Like it sort of seeped out into the water slowly.
I spent 5 to 10 mins just looking at the stool to see if it had blood actually on or in the stool, but it looked fine with it's normally brown lumpy colour. The blood looks bright red, not black or dark red.
Now I have had a really bad diet lately, as the company I work for has brought in a mcdonalds, and I get free staff meals which means I can eat what I want from there.
Im almost always feeling quite bloated after I eat and then the flatulents start, but I will need the loo maybe 45mins-2 hours after and I feel fine. I also eat ALOT lol but I am only 11st 3lbs. There is a little discomfort during this period which i am thinking is down to being gassy. For the amount I eat I should be putting on weight but people are saying its just a fast metabolism.
Ive read all sorts of websites saying it can be hemmeroids, chrones disease, ibs, ibd or even colon cancer. Now thats when I began to get scared. Needless to say have cut right down on the free mcdonalds, sometimes getting the breakfast instead.
I will he going to my gp in the morning as I need to find iut wuat is wrong after reading up on it.
What tests can I expect to get done? Is there anyone out there that is familiar with what these symptoms could be? Now im not a hypercondriack but reading the colon cancer part has really ''put the poo's in me''
Thanks for reading, I hope someone can shed some light.
