A couple of weeks ago, i was experiencing intermittent cramps in my lower abdomen, bad enough to make me double over and curse. Two days ago i had the urge to have a bowel movement, ended up sitting on the throne for an hour before i finally could pass the movement..it was hard and very big.
I still didnt feel empty, but was without concern. The next morning i went again, but the toilet was full of blood and it looked like reddish pink dense sand in the bottom of the bowel.
I went to the Dr and had a rectal exam, negative for hemmoroids, but the Dr seen the blood and suggested it was up to high to see anything by rectal exam. I was sent for an x-ray which also came back negative.
I was prescribed Lactulose solution, I took it twice yesterday. The result: Just more blood and this stuff that looks sandy in the bottom of bowl. Today i had a very small movement, it was like small chunks, 3 or 4 of them.. the Blood is now accompanied by milky Mucus and clots and i still feel like i have to have a bowel movement.
I have lost control of my bowels about 5 times in the last two days.
When i called the Dr yesterday to say i am still bleeding and what should i do, she said keep taking the laxative.. I am somewhat suprised at her response. I am male 37 years old.. any advice would be great.
