Hi everyone. I haven’t been on here for about 10 years or more! My husband had jpouch surgery in 2001 due to colitis.
Our 13 year old has had blood in his stool for a few weeks now. It all started when he tried to change his bowel movement to the morning. He was going during school hours and started to force it in the morning at home. The blood seemed like it was from wiping, not inside his stool , so I thought it was hemmeroids. He recently had a blood test that showed an infection (or inflammation)but we weren’t sure if it was from a recent strep thoat diagnosis. We then did a stool sample and that came back positive for an inflammation. (Could that be from a hemmeroid??) Our next step is to do a colonoscopy. I’m not really sure what my question is , but does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions? He missed school today and yesterday because he was going so often. I just went to get some VSL but cvs and walgeeens didn’t have it because of a recall. I bought Heathers Tummy tamers and have been giving him probiotics. Any suggestions to help with urgency? He’s going about every 30/45/60 minutes
Thanks in advance. It’s been awhile and I found this site so helpful when my husband just had his colitis and surgery.
