Well my best friend has had a colostomy reversal well over a year now. She has had some rectal bleeding. She doesn't have insurance so she has to go to the university hospital and they take along time to get back to her when she has a question. She will normally just have to go to the ER in order to get any assistance. She gets testing done and they always say the tests were inconclusive. They tell her to see a specialist, however specialist's are not free. They have suggested to her to up her fiber intake and to avoid certain foods. So yesterday she had A LOT more bleeding then usual and felt really dizzy and nauseated. Couldn't get a hold of her doctor so she went to ER and again the tests were inconclusive. She has been under some unusual amounts of stress lately. She is feeling down today and is still having some bleeding.

Has anyone else experienced bleeding like this that can advise me on what we can do? 

I appreciate any help with this matter, thank you for responding.
