I am a 38 year old mom of six. I have been having bright red blood in my stool for about
a year now. Lately, the stool has been streaked almost daily. Now, the next issue is that whenever I eat I have to run to the bathroom in under 10 minutes with the runs. In between the running to the bathroom I may have formed stool but it is tiny pencil like and always streaked with blood. I have horrible smelly gas and my stomach is always gurgling.
I am scared that I may have something very serious going on here so I made an appointment with a GI. After describing my symptoms I was given an appointment and told to do 2 fleet enemas an hour before so a probe can be done.
What kind of probe? Is this going to hurt? I looked at various symptoms for different bowel issues and I am afraid I have them all.
Does anyone have any of these symptoms? Or have an idea what kind of probe this will be?
