Leah asks,

I have had poop in my blood from mid-December last year to the beginning of March. When pooping it was VERY painful... so much so that I literally cringed even at the thought of pooping. Anyways, I finally went to the doctor to see what was up. She did her probe and declared me perfectly healthy, but gave me some medication to see if it would reduce the pain and the blood. It did. But since I've discontinued the use, I've started to poo blood again and it hurts a LOT. Has this happened to anyone? Does anyone have any idea what's wrong?





Poonurse responds:

Do you have poop in your blood, or blood in your poop? Very different problems.

If you have the former, I would say you are in deep doo-doo, no pun intended. It is very hard to get poop out of your blood.

If the problem is the latter, I would advise you to start back on the medication your doctor gave you for this problem. See if you can't find out what the ACTUAL NAME of your condition is, from your REAL DOCTOR. This would go a long way towards helping me give you some advice.

Let me know what it is when you find out, and I'll see if I can offer any help.





Leah writes back,

The medication my doctor gave me is called Proctomyxin HC. I was to apply it morning and night and after every poop for ten days. I did all of this as instructed. My doctor thought it was a cut that I had "in there." The medication started to work, but not after one huge poop of blood. It was on my poop, I think, although I didn't excatly pick up my poop and open it up. After this terrifying incident, it went away -- both the pain and the blood. It stoped for the duration of my ten days, and I was a happy pooper. Since then, I've discontinued the medication (as instructed), but the blood has now returned, along with the pain. But, if this makes sense, the pain has moved to a different area in my rectum. But it hurts just as much!





Dear Leah,

As you know, I am not a doctor. But it sounds like you possibly could have a rectal fissure, which is like a tiny tear in the lining of the rectum. It can cause pain and rectal bleeding such as you describe.

But I must tell you that beyond following a high fiber diet and drinking tons of water (these make the poop easier to pass and less likely to keep irritating your rectum), you REALLY NEED to go back to the butt doctor and report that your symptoms have returned.

If you have a family doctor treating you, ask for a referral to a gastroenterologist. They specialize in these kinds of problems. But do go back.

Thanks for asking Poonurse!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

i am a 13 year old girl and i am scared to death about cancer and any types of dieseases and i have been trying to stay away from junk food (chips chocolate..etc)its not easy:l

here is some advice:

EAT HEALTHY :)

FOOD WITH FIBRE IS GREAT

LOTS OF WATER - 8? GLASSES A DAY

GET ADVICE FROM AN ADULT :)

OR PROBABLY MIGHT WANT TO SEE A DOCTOR IF ITS BEEN HAPPENING FOR MORE THAN A WEEK

**IF THE BLOOD IS DARK AND IN CLUMPS ITS MORE DANGEROUS and can lead to colon cancer over a long period of time

**IF IT IS LIGHT RED , IT''LL PROBABLY GET BETTER ONCE YOU FIX YOUR DIET:) -FOR THIS ONE YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME ANAL PAIN

hope this really helps :D

I'm 13 plus, going on 14, and I had diarrhea about a week ago, so I tried not going to poo so often... but then yesterday I went to poo. and it was very painful and hard to shit it out. I always poo in less then 5 mins but this time it wass too hard to poo and I sat thre for more then 5 mins . After poo-ing.. I went to watch the TV, but I felt that I had to poo again, so I went to sit and try to poo, the poo did not come out but my butt was very painful so I put a toilet paper at my butt and then I saw a few drops of blood! I was very scared please help me!

All of you last four posters: SEE YOUR DOCTOR! We on this site can sympathize, even empathize if we have had these symptoms, but we can't prescribe. We don't know why your system is doing what it does. We don't know how to fix it. See the doc.

This used to happen to me all the time, in fact I even thought it was perfectly normal. What worked for me was to watch the milk in my diet. I realized I wasn't drinking any milk at all, cuz I was busy and it just went bad all the time. I found if I don't drink milk my poop gets really hard and comes out clean but always with a little blood. When I do drink milk it becomes mushy and even like diarrhea so it becomes a bit of a challenge to drink the right amount to make it come out "right". A bit in my cereal seems to do it. My mom always told me you had to eat a little bit of fat to grease your insides so maybe that's part of it too. Just thought I'd throw that out there for all the people wondering.

I poop at least once a day, one day I poop and see a little blood floating over the top of it but I don't pay any mind to it. The next day I go and when I turn around to flush the whole inside of the toilet is filled with blood, not a lot but enough to worry me. I go to wipe and there it is again so not to sound cowardly but am I gonna die or be sick or anything oh and also I'm a teenager so should I be extra worried. Please respond as soon as possible, thank you.

All of you last three who pooped blood: You must see a doctor! Small amounts rarely or occasionally on the poop or toilet paper: not a problem; likely a hard or pointy something came out with your turd. But lots of blood, especially on a repeat basis--not so good! Lots of possible causes; we on this site can't tell you which one it might be. Your doctor is your best bet. He will not be surprised that you have a bottom, or that you poop; he knows that before you walk in. He poops, too. Don't be embarrassed. It may be inconvenient to go to the doctor, even a bit scary; but it might be much worse if you don't.

Dear AC, Sayonara, you will be missed after your demise. Perhaps biting on a larger stick will give you a little extra time. Can I have your bicycle?

Dear ERIC, I would never consider telling you to go see a doctor. I think it would be wiser for you to go see an English teacher so we know what you're talking about. You had me on the "im 18", my guess would have been under ten.

Dear AC who posted directly after ERIC, I'm afraid I must give you the same advice.

Dear AB: If you are only 14, you cannot drive yourself, so someone else will have to take you to the doctor. Try to find someone else who poops, and who knows that you poop, and tell that person about this. Oh, wait--that might be Mom, or even Dad! A day or two of seeing a little blood may be nothing to worry about, but a month? Come on, now--tell someone!

Dear AO: We'd love to help, but we are not doctors (most of us, anyway) and don't even know what to ask you about other symptoms, how long you've noticed the blood, your diet, etc. Blood coming from your butt could mean something serious, so please get to your doctor immediately, if not sooner.

Ac, talk to your doctor. Their job is to help. Stop eating grapes and see what happens.

Dear poop man, If your mommy doesn't love you, why should we? You will obviously bleed to death anally. Can I have your iPod?
