Hello, Everyone. I am new here and I am for information. I have not been diagnosed with cancer; however, I go see a colorectal specialist on the 12th. Well, back in 2008, I had some rectal bleeding to the point where all the water in the toilet bowl turned red (no pain).This happened for about a week before having a colonoscopy which found diverticula and small hemorrhoids. Recently, well, about three months ago, I suddenly began bleeding with lots of rectal pain (also changing the water). I had a CT Scan that showed a soft tissue structure; however, the report stated it could have also been stool. I then had a colonoscopy that found no diverticula or anything else for that fact. He said only a couple small hemorrhoids. Another CT Scan (this is due to unbearable pain)that showed nothing; however said I have an enlarged liver. I am so frustrated at this point. The idea now is that I may have a anal fissure; however, I had no cause for such to appear out the blue. I have been using nitroglycerin cream, but with only minimal effect. The best thing for me is to not have any bowel movements.I have movements two -three days in a row, the pain returns with lots of bleeding. Am I over-reacting? I'm just thinking back to 2008 with the first round of bleeding which we never found a cause for and now again 5 yrs later in full force with pain and bleeding. Also, I did have a digital exam by an ER doctor; however, he referred to the specialist I am going to see. Anyone have anything similar?
