Dear All, I've been bleeding when I pass stool. The stool is hard in the begining and then I see blood, in fact the blood drops out separately too and not just coats the stool. But later stools don't have blood on them. This happened a month ago and the GI prescribed Canasa. But near the end of the prescription, a couple of days ago the blood returned. I don't have urgencies like before - 1-2 BMs a day. But whenever I see the blood, my heart just sinks. Any words of advice/comfort? What could be going on? Could it be a tear - although I don't feel much during BMs but I occasionally feel sharp pains in my left side that last for a coupld of seconds.
