Stomach Problems

7 posts in this topic

Ya know, I had promised myself that the next time I posted it was going to be something good, not another complaint but I've had quite a scare this morning. I ocassionally have blood in my stool, had a colonoscopy earlier this year,revealed nothing more than chronic gastritis. For the last few days I have been getting sick to my stomach when I take my meds and last night I had some blood in my stool again. I got up this morning nauseated and am passing blood CLOTS! Do any of you experience this? I am going to call my dr first thing I am just a bit concerned and need some words of encouragement!!

 

Thank you all for all of the support you have given to me!!

 

Hugs ,Tammy,

Tammy,

 

I'm so glad you are calling the doctor. It could be so many things, gastritis, irritable bowel, but I guess I'm a concerned it may be a G.I. bleed. I'm not sure what meds you are on, but so many are very hard on the stomach, even simple Ibuprofen. Please do let us know the outcome of your call or visit to the doctor.

 

Thinking of you,


Warm and gentle hugs,

call your gastro blood in your stools is not good. I have ulcerative colitis and I take meds for it and it does help, When I start bleeding I deyhdrate so quickly. So Please call the doctor and get checked it out. Sam

I hope you called the dr and are in his good hands getting an answer! Clotting means long term bleeds. While it is true meds can cause it - such was the case for my husband a few years ago - you still need to find out what's causing it & how to stop it! I hope you post soon so we can celebrate the good news that it was nothing to worry about!


Soft hugs your way,

I talked to my dr this am, looks like another colonoscopy. I really feel that it is possible that it is the meds, I have a very sensitive stomach. I had been having some pain in the lower left abdominal area that lasted for about a month or so but has gone away in the last several days, I really assumed that it was the tumor on my fallopian tube causing the pain. Guess we'll find out. I am so physically and emotionally DRAINED...thanks for the hugs!!!
