I've been to the G.I. Doctors for the past 3 months.
I have normal bowel movements I go once or twice a day and that's it.
I noticed that there is blood on the surface of my stool but not in it, because I had a fecal blood test with my G.I. doctor and said It was perfect normal.
but now, I get kinda tired or fatigued and I've lost 27 pounds in 3 months.
Everyone I know has told me I've gotten thin.
I have been diagnosed with Mild Gastritis so I take Protonix 40mg once a day.
When I go for a bowel movement it feels like there is a tear on the inside of the rectum, which was there after I pasted a hard stool a few months back.
could this be U.C. or unlikely?
