@EastCoastGal No one should shame you for not going to the ER. These things can be scary and kind of throw us out of whack! Do not let anyone ever  shame you.

Most doctors who perform colonoscopies refer people to other specialists if problems are found. Do not call the senior doctor.

 

Did the colonoscopy dr refer you to someone8? If not, get the results on paper and call your own doctor for a referral or recommendation.

 

IMO, I'd have gone to the emergency room the first day if I had clots and blood like you describe.



@CalminHeart ... My sister did tell me to go to the emergency room but l thought what are they going to do to stop the bleeding? I thought only the colonoscopy doctor could help me because l went to him for an exam and he told me l had a hemorrhoid. I must have bled some for me to make that appointment. Then a few weeks later is when l had the bad bleeding. He seemed confused as to why l bled so much. I took a picture of how it looked in the toilet and he was glad l took a picture. He scratched his head when l told him l threw up clear liquid several times! He scheduled the colonoscopy. No. He didn't refer me to anyone. He completely dropped the subject after he told me my procedure was fine. He said he didn't think the bleeding was from my colon after all. I was very groggy from the medicine they gave me so l didn't think of it then. 

l haven't had any bleeding since and this happened about 3 months ago. It has been on my mind a lot because l really thought there was something wrong. You know how you get the feeling something is wrong? 


 

I'm sorry if I'm wrong with what I'm about to say. I say it because colon cancer runs rampant in my family and too many have died. Any symptom requires urgent care. 

 

All this doesn't make sense to me. IMHO, if it was as bad as you say, it's hard to imagine anyone waiting weeks for a test instead of doing something the first day. 

 

At the very least, ER/the hospital could have scheduled a colonoscopy within a day or two. If it wasn't a colon issue, the hospital would have helped figure out what it was. 

 

And just because the bleeding stopped doesn't mean the problem went away.

 

 

 



@CalminHeart ... Oh you're absolutely right and it was as bad as l said it was! I DO NOT MAKE THINGS UP!!!!! I don't need attention like some people on here...

 

...and IMHO... I RESENT BEING CALLED A LIAR BECAUSE IT. ALL. HAPPENED... ITS YOUR PROBLEM IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME. NOW LEAVE ME ALONE... 


 

I didn't call you a liar. I said your post didn't make sense to me.

 

Don't fall off your high horse.

Don't worry yourself too much.

 

   You just trusted in your doctor and believed that he would've said to follow up if you should have.

We aren't doctors and we put our trust in them and unfortunately some are too overworked or unfortunately uncaring (some outright suck in my opinion) so you did what you should do you sought out advice because you trusted your gut and good for you!

 

Now, don't worry yourself too much! You'll figure it out and I wish you the best!Woman Happy

@GingerHead ... Thank you for your kind words. Everything you said is true. I think this doctor didn't know the answer and chose to ignore me. All he had to do was refer me to another doctor but he chose not to.

 

Thank you so much!
