I am quite regular when I pass stools, however I only ever go every 2 to 3 days on average. However when I do go there is always a sense of urgency and I do get lower abdominal pains. Stools themselves are very watery to begin with, almost like the end of Picolax bowel prep when having a colonoscopy, which is then followed by loose stools, following this I've sometimes had bright red blood. These bouts leave me feeling generally very ill and terrible for about a day, and then it seems to ease, until I need to go again. I would like to add that when I do have one of these bouts, I only ever pass stools once, not many times as most IBS-D sufferers have to endure.
I had a colonoscopy a few months ago with biopsies taken, and apparently my colon, rectum and terminal ileum looked very healthy, no visible problems, and the biopsies came back clear, the only thing found was haemorrhoids, and from what I saw quite prominent ones as well, so the bleeding is pretty much guaranteed to be that. What I'm querying is the not going for a few days, then when I do pass stools its watery diarrhoea, and I only have to go once that is making me question my diagnosis of IBS.
Does anyone else go through these sorts of episodes? I would be interested to know other peoples experiences, especially if they are similar to mine.
Any thoughts, views and comments would be greatly appreciated.
