In Jan 2016 when I went to the toilet I noticed I had blood in my stool and I went to the doctors who said it was probably just a tear. Feeling relived I hoped it would go away however every time I went to the toilet there was always blood. Then I had constipation and felt like I never needed to go so back to the doctors and they gave me laxatives. These didn't really work and when they did I had a upset stomach. I began feeling unwell and had pain stomach pains and went back to the doctor who eventually arranged a colonoscopy. I was terrified, during the procedure they found a polyp in my rectum that was sent away and came back it was not cancerous. They advised me that the problems I had should now go away. A year on and I still cannot go to the toilet I don't go for a week and then i end up taking laxatives which make me feel ill. I have gone back back to the doctors and they said there's no more that had be done and could be ibs. I'm struggling and feeling ill, I've had bad stomach pains and never go to the toilet only if I take laxatives. Anyone know why this could be? I'm worrying a lot and during the colonscopy they didn't enter both the small and large intenstine (only one) can't remember which one It was.
