Colon Problems: Mucus, weird shapes, gass, floating

Posted , 6 users are following.

For about two and a half year now I have problems with my colon. It started with mucus with the stool along with weird shaped stool. I have visited the docter many times about this and also two times with a colon doc. They have made Xrays of my colon 1 year ago and about 1 month ago. The xray from a year ago showed that my entire colon was full of stool. The Colon Doc said is was due to a lazy colon and my own doc said it was IBS. Since the last year I have been taking daily 3 times Volcolon (fibers) which sometimes makes the stool seem normal. But most of the time the stool is mussy, flat, thin, sometimes thick, shapeless etc. Now since the last two days i noticed very small bright red dots of (what I believe is) blood on the toilet paper after whiping. This is freaking me out. I have made another appointment on Monday but some feedback in the meantime would be great. I have made a picture of my last stool which can be seen here (Warning Graphic!):

And also a pic of the blood on the toilet paper which can be seen here:

A summary of my colon problems:

- Mucus

- Weird looking stool

- Lots of gass

- Little bits of undigested food in stool

- Several bowel movements a day

Sometimes I have a couple of days or weeks in a row where the stool looks normal which relaxes me but now with the blood my stress level is really high. My problems started after a long time of severe stress. I as 23 when it started and are now 26.

Any feedback on what you might think is the cause of these problems and especially what the dots of blood mean would be great. Again I am visiting the docter on monday again. Thanks.

    Your colon doctor should have taken a colonoscopy test. It can be ibs but blood with stool should be properly investigated.

    What is your age?

    Hello Peter.

    Did you manage to get a diagnosis for your condition.

    If it's bright red blood when you wipe on the tissue it will most likely be a bit from where you have wiped or from the stool when you was having your BM.
