Shitting Blood: Am I going to die?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

It's happened twice today. Full on bleeding, like there is a poop riding the wave out of the elevator in The Shining. But I don't feel any pain and haven't done anything to, ahem, injure myself in that area? Am I going to die? Should I go to a doctor immediately or is alright to wait till Monday and see if I'm fine pooping by then?

Doctor. Immediately.

i have shat blood many times, but always after abusing my body terribly with drugs and alcohol. I would definitely go to the doctor if i were you.

done it without either of the above per jim, but never went to the doctor. looked it up and convinced myself it was just a tear in the tissue of the exit area.

i was stupid, go get it checked out is my advice.

yeah, go see a doctor. as someone who shits blood regularly due to crohn's (although never full-on gushing...)

Depends on a couple things tbh. Is it bright red blood? Do you feel sick otherwise?

If it's bright red and you do not feel sick otherwise then it's probably a hemorrhoid and you should be fine to wait and see if it sorts itself out. If you start feeling ill or the bleeding gets worse and becomes excessive then I would go to the Dr sooner rather than later.

tear in the tissue of the exit area

anal fissure would probably hurt a lot

Check with a doctor yeah but iirc fresh blood is usually not a sign of teh serious, clotted dark blood is the worry alarm.

maybe my shining description was ott but its bright red, yeah. not feeling any worse than usual or any pain or anything. my poop seemed regular, just surrounded in blood.

Just noticed the time- by the time I get to the surgery the place will be closed. Cannot be bothered to spend an hour travelling to the hospital unless it starts to hurt. Will book an appointment w/ the doctor in the morning if I'm still pooping the blood.

You're not going to die Sam - probably just an internal roid that you busted while errr straining (sorry!). You're not in pain so likely not a fissure and if it was colitis or chron's you would most likely have other symptoms. If it continues def get it checked out but I don't think at this point you have any reason to heard to the ER or anything.

I knew I wasn't going to die! I just wrote that because

Not even straining, my pooping has been high quality of late (except when i was on the whisky last week) [sorry, but then this is iltmi].

So I am going to ignore the problem and then hope it goes away. Cheers ILTMI.

I don't think you need to get to Casualty or anything, but personally I'd see a GP at some point even if it clears up. Or maybe you could call nhsdirect but they'll probably just say "well you're probably fine but you should go to the GP" which is exactly what this post says.

(My mother has Crohns so I was made to promise many times that if I ever had the ass-bleedings I would get myself to a doctor. That said I think NV and ENBB are correct so don't panic etc.)

Yes, this. But go to doctor as soon as possible. Be prepared for a finger up your hole. Which is perhaps not your fave thing ever to have happen but is deffo 100% better than having your colon whipped out because it is riddled with millions of cancer (true story). Do not ignore this.

Ok ok. Need to go to job centre in the morn and then jump on a train straight after to get to my interview. Will try to go to the doctors to book an appointment for Monday in between. If my bumhole explodes in my job interview then I'll just have to carry on looking.

Full on bleeding, like there is a poop riding the wave out of the elevator in The Shining.

btw still kind of baffled that someone would experience this and wonder "hmm, I wonder if I should go see a doctor re: the deluge of blood that just came out of my ass"

I don't like doctors. Especially if they are going to be putting things in my pooper. Best left alone until an emergancy in my experience and stupidity.

apparently ymmv but any quantity of blood that could be described as being akin to the blood flood from "The Shining" would count as an emergency for me

Jay Leno's Pony Vivisection Hour (HI DERE), Thursday, 14 January 2010 21:59 (nine years ago) Permalink

NOT A DOCTOR BUT

ENBB is probably right: bright red blood means the blood is likely coming from somewhere perianal, not from your gut (which would make your shit black). which likely means: hemorrhoids. yr not gonna die, so don't go rushing to the ER. make an appt with your GP if yr concerned, or sit (lol) it out.

according to the orthopod that gave a lecture a month ago, even that isn't an (orthopedic) emergency: like keys into a molten river of lava, once you lose your limbs they're probably gone, man

I'm not too worried. Kind of morbidly curious. If it doesn't go away within a couple days I will go to the doctor (I don't even know how though, I have no insurance).

bright red or dark red? if it's the former, nothing to worry about unless it persists

Corey - read through the last revive if you want - some good advice there but essentially Estela OTM. It's prob nothing (esp if it's bright red blood) but if it continues you'll want to get it checked out just in case.

Awwww corey. There's every chance that these two things could be totally unrelated but if I were you'd I'd go to the doc today if poss. I know that's tough without insurance but you're in Chicago, right? Is there some kind of a free care clinic you could go to?

I knew a guy who shat blood. It turned out to be caused by drinking alcohol and chasing with aspirin (or tylenol, i forget). You didn't do that, did you?

Either way, go and see a professional. They are better equipped to Dx you than a crowdsourced response from "I Love TMI" ever could.

I don't know. I had (really uncomfortable) sex a couple nights ago for the first time in several months, so that might have something to do with it.

Oh well that sort of changes things. I was going to ask but figured you'd have mentioned it if you had. Assuming you were the anal receptive partner then that could absolutely have something to do with the bleeding esp if it was "really uncomfortable" at the time.

It would probably still be a good idea to get checked out but I realize that without insurance that might not be possible right away. :/ Take care of yourself Corey.

one year passes...

so had this fun surprise just an hour ago. it was bright red, didn't notice if it was in the stool or not but there was some in the water of the toilet and a lot on the paper. recently was very dehydrated and there were hard stools passed, one which may have caused a tear as there was trace bleeding after it (and it was painful), but since then, I've hydrated and gotten to feeling better.

not asking here in place of going to the doc (I already am expecting my doc will want a follow-up after my last blood work anyway), but mostly just curious, is this something I can go to my PCP and have em check rather easily or should I see a specialist if I decide to?

last time I went to my PCP for something similar she basically violated my rectum and it felt weird for days (and couldn't find a fissure or external roid). but that was 5 years ago.

also if there's something visual that is a horror story that I should be aware of let me know, otherwise I'll just make a JIC appt after this weekend if it persists.
