Rosemary, my symptoms are much better today. I had a colonoscopy 3 years ago, and that was clean as was all the others I had. I will be seeing my doctor next month and plan on discussing this with her at that time. I see no more blood, and will be doing a hemocult test tomorrow to check the stools. No mucusy blood on the outside either and they are now formed. Feeling better about it and may just move my colonoscopy up a bit to be sure though. Thank you so much for replying.
