    I started to bleed also and I called my doctor and he stated to go to the emergency room immediately and I'm glad I did..I received a colinoscopy and they cauterized the bleed and removed two polyps and then three weeks later had my sigmoid colon removed..

    I will be post op 30 days tommorow and recovering.
