My bum is bleeding. No pain, but loads of blood - like dripping into the toilet. What's that all about then?

I wouldn't bother with NHS Direct, ring your out-of-hours GP. You will get to speak to a GP who can advise you on what to do next.

information here get it checked out fisil

fisil Sat 13-Aug-05 18:19:27

yes, just when on the toilet (not hitting my pants - tmi?). But I can't be doing with all the faff, cos it isn't hurting! Do you really think I should?

Twiglett Sat 13-Aug-05 18:20:34

YES (and I mean to shout)

Seek Care Immediately If...
You see more than a streak of blood on the toilet paper after wiping your bottom.

Call Your Doctor If...

You see a small amount of bright red blood on your stool or in the toilet water.

any news are you ok fisil?

fisil Sat 13-Aug-05 18:56:33

Sorry, I was in shock over essbee's spot.

Actually, I was putting the boys to bed.

Essbee, you are an angel. Dp is here, so if I need to go off anywhere, we're sorted. But you are very very sweet.

Right, you've convinced me. I will ring NHS Direct.

Charlee Sat 13-Aug-05 18:57:12

let us know how you get on, im interested now............. sorry! hope your ok!

jayzmummy Sat 13-Aug-05 18:59:15

Hope all is well fisil.

foxinsocks Sat 13-Aug-05 19:02:28

have you got piles? because big piles can bleed quite a bit

expatinscotland Sat 13-Aug-05 19:03:10

You could have internal piles and not know it. Or a small anal fissure. Ring NHS direct immediately.

Janh Sat 13-Aug-05 19:11:20

When they say piles, fisil, they mean "hemorrhoids (HEM-uh-roids)" btw

Sorry, I know piles aren't funny, it's the pronunciation guide that tickled me (wouldn't you know it's an American site! Let's see - "hee-more-hoyds" perhaps?)

Hope everything's OK, chuck

TMI, essbee, dear.


fisil Sat 13-Aug-05 19:12:54

NHS Direct will be getting back to me.

I would know if I had piles, wouldn't I? But I didn't know about internal piles. I did give birth 3 months ago, so it's not impossible.

I had surgery a few years back for anal fistulae. I was discharged about 7 years ago, but maybe it's connected?

fisil Sat 13-Aug-05 19:15:31

essbee, do you want me to pop over to yours to save your children the horror of your spot?
