This is David
you could have had a diverticulosis bleed from your colon .
diverticulosis can bleed like this and cause severe pain.
you should go back to the hospital.
diverticulosis sometimes can turn into diverticulitis can become infected and require antibiotics
you could very well be dehydrated from the loss of water and lack of oral intake.
at first I though most likely you had a hemorrhoid bleed
that would be most common.
but you could have a diverticulosis bleed now with the pain.
hard to know without that colonoscopy.
Thank you for this advice I have made myself drink 3 litres of water today and although I still feel dreadful I feel better than Saturday and sunday and today have passed pure watery motion twice which compared to yesterday and Saturday is better when it was every half an hour.
this is crazy.
you really should be in the hospital
they should be doing the colonoscopy like now.
you need also an IV as well to get fluid into your system.
if you have diverticulosis, you need antibiotics like flagyl to help.
and then you need to be started on some anti-diarrhea agents to stop your watery diarrhea.
you shouldn't be at home waiting for the procedure until May 1st.
Thank you I am taking your advice I am going back to the emergency surgical assessment unit at my hospital they said to go straight back if any problems without going through the A&E thank you I am going there now.
