Bloody stools : Having blood & mucus in your stools with abdominal pain for a whole year, you need to see your 1ry care physician ASAP, you also need work up & a referal to a gastroentrologist, this could be a serious condition, so please don't ignore this anymore, if your doctor can't see you right away go to ER. Feel better.
