serious question - blood and fat/mucus in stool 10/10/2008 6:10PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
hi guys,

well, ive had a problem for a while so i turn to the infinite wisdom of letsrun.

im 26 and a was a self admitted heavy drinker after meets and sometimes one a weeknight too in college (until 23). after college, i actually partied more because i didn't have the stress of running and homework, and i had a little more money. i'd say i go out about 4X a week, drinking heavily at least one. lately i've been having a little bit of bright red blood on my tp and some fat in my stool. i looked it up and it could be anything from ulcerative colitis to fatty liver to chronically inflammed pancreas.

any docs out htere know what it might be or if it's common? i know i need to go and get it looked at, but i'm sort of in denial and crapping myself right now i guess (no pun intended)....

serious replies would be greatly appreciated....

It could be a couple of things, but you better ask your boyfriend what kind of lube he uses.

Could be diverticulitis, ulcerative colits, IBS, or even a tumor. GET IT CHECKED OUT!

No kidding. I would have noticed the blood but the fat and mucus? Are you serious?

if its dark and tarry in colour its something serious in your upper gi tract if its light red in colour its more likely piles or whatever you americans call them but the mucuss is of concern too many things going on there to give a guess definately worth a trip to the doctor
