A year ago i was bleeding badly rectally, I made the appt with the gastro guy and it took six weeks for appt despite the fact I was bleeding so bad I had to wear an adult nappy. Ring, Ring to mke sure they have your info ect in case something happened Im sure the receptionist wont mind at all. By the way mine gave me a colonoscoopy fairly quickly and I have U lcerative colinitus. It is easily treated and I can still have my meds.
I would definitely call the Gastro doctor. Just say you were calling to see if they had received your information from your doc and if they had an opening to see you soon. Sorry you're having this trouble and having to wait makes it worse.
If the bleeding gets worse, I would then call your doctor and ask if they can get you in any earlier to see the Gastro doctor. Tell them what's going on. Sometimes your general doctor can call and tell them they need an asap appt. for a patient and they will get you right in. Good luck and hopefully it is nothing serious. Keep us updated!
Never regret something that made you smile!

Hey Boo Boo.. ( I just LOVE that name )
Yes, hemrroids can bleed A LOT. My dad had a lot of problems with them. He had bleeding & they did some surgery that helped. I don't know what pain meds you were on but if it was vicodin or anything like it it can cause a lot of bowel problems. That's why I can't take them.
Hope you get this situation under control and give that GP a peice of your mind.. heck you can give him a peice of my mind too . since I'm not using most of it these days LOL!!
I hope you are feeling better. I told my doctor that I can not take asprin/ibprophen because they cause me severe stomache problems and I end up vomitting blood. Well, he must of thought I was just trying to get narcotic pain meds because he gave me mobic and said that it wouldn't cause any problems. Less than a week later I ended up in the hospital vomitting blood. The only med I was on was Mobic so the hospital doctors said that it was the cause. Just food for thought...
