Five weeks ago for the fist time in my 58 years I started to have rectal bleeding. I went to my doctor and he examined me and said that I have a small internal hemorrhoid. He gave me 5 suppositories and sent me for blood work which tested normal. He was also supposed to set me up with a referral for a colonoscopy screening. After using the suppositories 3 times I started to have mucous mixed in with blood and really noticed that I was becoming constipated. I feel like I have to go but sometimes there's not much but it feels like I am not done. I now feel what I'm sure is an external hemorrhoid too and I am having some stomach discomfort also. There are times that I feel lethargic and run a low-grade fever. I still seem to have a good appetite most of the time. I saw the specialist yesterday and I am being scheduled for the colonoscopy the first week in September. This morning I had some white colored stool so now I am really getting scared. I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced similar issues with hemorrhoids and if so was there something else going on? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading.
