hey all. so i posted before about
this but i had a couple more questions... i sincerely apologize for a second post along the same lines, but again, a couple more questions arose.
lately when i go to the washroom there will be black mucus on the stool (by lately i mean for months now). it is only ever mixed in when the stool is loose. it is mostly black, sometimes a very dark purple. it is usually not a lot, but today there was quite a bit. i believe i have a hemorrhoid right now, though, which has been causing some bright red bleeding as well... could old hemorrhoid blood cause black mucus?
i have been diagnosed with colitis formally for almost 3 years. currently on 4 mezavant pills a day, one vancocin pill a day (to deal with a suspected c-diff infection), two florastor pro biotic pills. no iron pills or other supplements. just all those and good ol birth control.
i feel fine besides this, not even flaring... i just always assume the worst and feel so scared that it's something crazy like pancreatic cancer or stomach cancer. i know i always jump to the worst but i deal with insane anxiety.
again, i know i posted about
this before, but does anyone else have any ideas what this could be? do you think hemorrhoids (internal ones) or fissures could be contributing?
i've told my GI about
this several times but she doesn't ever seem extremely alarmed. she mentioned doing another colonoscopy if it doesn't go away but her aloofness kind of scares me in case she's missing something that could be really serious...
any more help would be greatly appreciated.
