Hello Does any one who suffers from Diverticular Disease get blood in stools but with out being ill no pain or high temperature etc. All I read is that Diverticular cause sudden large amount of blood which stops on it's own. This happens when my stools are lumpy not when they are smooth sorry to be graphic. It is not liquid blood but looks more like blood from a graze also when wiping and it red to maroon in colour. 9 months ago I had a colonoscopy following a bout of constipation and blood in stools. I was diagnosed with diverticulosis all down sigmoid colon and small internal hemmeroids. The surgeon who did the scope could not tell me which was causing the bleeding and because there was only 1 small benign polyp I did not need to see him again. I was not given much info about diverticular disease although I do also suffer from IBS for around 8 years. I also suffer from anxiety which does help with either IBS or DD. I take fybogel with mebeverine which does make sue I go daily but I still have trouble with lumpy stools like small balls stuck together. I did wonder about whether they could get stuck in diverticular and cause the blood to appear but my gp seemed to think that I would be in pain and feel ill. I am used to stomach cramps with IBS and odd pain down on left hand side which I get with both. This last year has been very stressful, a week ago I had a camera down and have been diagnosed with mild grastritis but with no bleeding and have been given ranitidine to take which seems to be working. My husband also has a few health problems. I intend to call my gp on Monday morning for an appointment, I am hoping she will not say I need another colonoscopy. Any ideas how I can treat this I never know whether you should eat high fibre or lower fibre soluble or insoluble fibre. So much conflicting advice. I have always had trouble with constipation and I suspect my anxiety has a lot to do with it.
