I went to the bathroom 3 times on Saturday and there was blood all in the toilet with my stool it was allot of blood scared me my stool was soft almost like diarrhea i haven't gone to the bathroom since Saturday which is weird because i always go to the bathroom at least 2 times a day, but Saturday i had a fever too chills and tired, I'm calling my Gastroenterologist doctor on Tuesday hopefully they can get me right in cause it takes a while to see him but if it happens again should i not wait and go to er?? just scared not sure what to do or what could be wrong? Today Monday i woke up and feel bloated uncomfortable like gas pains and still haven't had a bowel movement.
From the history provided here, presence of blood in stools, and possible cuts in the anal opening indicates possible anorectal fissures or mucosal tears associated with chronic constipation. Other possible causes of blood in stools include bacterial or parasitic dysentery, anorectal fistulas, hemorrhoids, polyps, inflammatory bowel disease, ano-rectal abscesses, etc.
You might consider getting yourself examined by your physician. A rectal examination and a stool examination will provide conclusive information for deciding the further treatment.
