Hi..welcome to the forum!
How many times in the bathroom were you? What kind of stool....diarrhea, loose soft, hard? Did you have urgency? lots of gas? granular poo with blood?
I would suggest you go back to the PCP and request a referral to another GI. Your PCP may do the finger up the butt and even if you do have a hemmie, it won't answer the reason why you're having multiple bms.
What you should also request is to have stool samples done to make sure the infection isn't back. Was it e.coli or c.diff that caused the initial infection?
I personally don't see the bleeding as the main problem as much as it is the change in your bowel habits. I don't know if IBS in itself causes extreme multiple bms....but that's not something I've experienced unless it's food-related or flare related.
Please keep us posted as to how you're doing.
