Hi Sam. Nice to meet you

Customer: Nice to meet you my question is ive been sticking stuff up my bum and i noticed when i took it out i found a little blood sample is this a risk
Dr. Phil, MD :

Yes, it is Sam.

Dr. Phil, MD :

Anything foreign into your anus/rectum carries a risk

Customer: What bad
Dr. Phil, MD :

It can get stuck and cause bleeding and infection

Customer: Nothing up there now
Dr. Phil, MD :

Ok good.

Dr. Phil, MD :

The rectum is a like a big pouch though and things can get stuck

Customer: Will it repair it self
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes it will

Dr. Phil, MD :

was it a small amount of blood?

Dr. Phil, MD :

is it still bleeding?

Customer: Thank you so much i been dreading the fact that i might have to see a doctor face to face
Dr. Phil, MD :

Well if it continues to bleed, then you will

Dr. Phil, MD :

There should be no bleeding with the next bowel movement

Dr. Phil, MD :

any bleeding now or pain?

Customer: Very small and i cant tell as im not sticking anything else up there no more and no pain
Dr. Phil, MD :

okay good.

Dr. Phil, MD :

This will likely heal on its own.

Dr. Phil, MD :

But if you have pain or bleeding with the next bowel movement, then it needs checked

Customer: Ok what is the problem i have committed ?
Customer: Ok
Dr. Phil, MD :

you likely tore some of the tissue

Dr. Phil, MD :

with the plastic

Dr. Phil, MD :

the anus and rectum tissue is very fragile

Customer: Oh ok i thought all the loose bits were poo
Dr. Phil, MD :

Is this helpful Sam?

Customer: Yes very much thank you
Dr. Phil, MD :
