where are you passing the blood?
what sort of tumor?
it was a colon tumor I am passing blood from back passage
when did this start? Any other symptoms? chest pain? Shortness of breath?
I have copd already
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
You can bleed A LOT and you are having symptoms of weakness which means you may already be anemic
This may be related to your previous resection from your bowel, but often it is a condition called diverticulosis
what does that mean
Diverticulosis is a condition in the bowel which can cause bleeding as you describe
But the more important thing is that you need to be seen in the ER today and right away
Because you are having a LOT of bleeding
You need labs done and IVF fluids
depending on your blood count, you may even need a transfusion
I am only bleeding when I pass stools
I understand, but lumps of liver are clots which is a lot of bleeding
it is not simple hemorrhoidal bleeding
did you see what I wrote?
