I have copd already

JACUSTOMER-lkzk6mwa- :

weakness

Dr. Cameron :

Okay thanks

JACUSTOMER-lkzk6mwa- :

yes

Dr. Cameron :

Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but rectal bleeding as you describe needs to be seen in the emergency department right away

Dr. Cameron :

You can bleed A LOT and you are having symptoms of weakness which means you may already be anemic

Dr. Cameron :

This may be related to your previous resection from your bowel, but often it is a condition called diverticulosis

JACUSTOMER-lkzk6mwa- :

what does that mean

Dr. Cameron :

Diverticulosis is a condition in the bowel which can cause bleeding as you describe

Dr. Cameron :

Dr. Cameron :

But the more important thing is that you need to be seen in the ER today and right away

Dr. Cameron :

Because you are having a LOT of bleeding

Dr. Cameron :

You need labs done and IVF fluids

Dr. Cameron :

depending on your blood count, you may even need a transfusion

JACUSTOMER-lkzk6mwa- :

I am only bleeding when I pass stools

Dr. Cameron :

I understand, but lumps of liver are clots which is a lot of bleeding

Dr. Cameron :

it is not simple hemorrhoidal bleeding

Dr. Cameron :

did you see what I wrote?

Dr. Cameron :

Normally I do not send people from this website to the ER

Dr. Cameron :

But I am an ER doctor and this is one of the few times that I do...

JACUSTOMER-lkzk6mwa- :

yes I undersand

Dr. Cameron :

please keep me posted... I am sorry to have told you this.. but it is really the medically appropriate thing to do
