I'm having a medical problem and it might be serious, I've noticed off and on blood either on the floor in the bathroom or today in the toilet or once in My stools, I know what I need to do, I called the Docs office, they said to visit the local emergency room in Barstow CA. To have My colon looked at, I've made enough calls as I've found that no one in the High Desert does a Virtual Colonoscopy using Multiple CT scan images, so I may have to call Loma Linda on Wednesday, the normal way to look inside requires a laxative, as does the CT scan, both are messy, looks like its Barstow or nothing, as I only have $6.14 in the checking and laxatives aren't covered by Medi-Cal(Medicaid in the other 49 states) and about 1/4 tank of gas in the car. Yes I'm hoping it won't be cancer, as no one in My family has had this, other stuff, but not cancer.

See the doctor about the very low possibility for checks on bowel or colon cancer. That would explain the rectal bleeding.

I had the same over 5 years ago, and my brother had the same (family history). They found colon cancer and surgically removed 17" of the colon. In my case there was lots of benign polyps that were removed.

They keep checking me every three years.

I've no family history of colon, bowel or even rectal cancer, My Brother was checked a lot, nothing was ever found down there, He just had lung cancer which they missed and which ended up killing Him. Once I do some tidying up in the shower in the morning, when it's warmer than now, I'll be going to the emergency room in Barstow CA, as that was what I was told to do and that's all that I can do for now.

It could also be cause I'm very heavy, I've had problems when cleaning up as the skin seems to very delicate down there.

So He had a resection, at least I think that's what that is called, hopefully He's ok today.

I'll talk more later.

Thanks John.

I'm feeling a bit painful down around the abdomen and My tush, I'm trying to take it easy as I chew on some ant acid tablets.

Oh the RN(Registered Nurse) on the phone that I called, asked if I felt lite headed, I said no, but that hasn't happened in over three weeks.

I'm definitely going to the emergency room in the morning. Right now I don't feel up to driving 12.5 miles down the freeway and I'm washing My under clothes.

I had similar symptoms a few years ago and it was a bleeding hemorrhoid.

Yeah My Mother had those, don't know if it was bleeding or not, but then I never asked.

In any case My gut is feeling strange, not painful and I'm a bit weak, I've never felt this way either.

I looked up hemorrhoid, I don't want to know anymore on that.

I did take 4 nsaid pain pills and I had a bit of fiber in a sandwich, yum.

Which one? Many of those are contra indicated if you are bleeding, and many of them are also contra indicated if you are having intestinal problems.

Hemorrhoids don't cause weakness. Please consider going now--concerned waiting might be really bad.

Enough bleeding of any type will cause weakness. However, enough bleeding to cause weakness is a really good reason for getting to the ER NOW

OK. That one is a problem for the liver if taken in too large doses. Make certain that the ER knows about it when you get there.

BTW, why are you still on the computer and not going to the ER?

I'm not bleeding or going to the bathroom, I had a pb&j type sandwich and I'm not feeling weak right now. I just feel like It may be My dinner, I had 4 fish sticks and ore-ida fries, all baked for dinner, I usually do feel stuffed.

In the mean time I found this. It's 38f outside right now and I don't feel up to going anywhere, except to take a nap.

If you have been bleeding all over the place, you might be anemic - which makes you tired and sleepy.

No I haven't been bleeding, not that I can tell, I decided to sit in the swivel recliner and watch "The Empire Strikes Back" on DVD, now I do feel better, especially around My abdomen.
