Gas, bloating, bad stomach pains that radiate to back, bright red blood in stool sometimes normal ultrasound. What can it be? Gastitis? Diverticulitis

Unlikely gastritis

Bright red blood is usually associated with disease of the left colon such as diverticulitis or hemorrhoids, but the latter is not typically associated with gas bloating. See your internist for an evaluation.

Why would I have blood in stool?

Many reasons

Blood
potentially but most common is hemorrhoids, fissures, fistula but less frequently infection or colitis/proctitis, polyps, tumors. No amount of bleeding is normal regardless of the cause. See a colorectal surgeon promptly to identify and treat the cause before more serious problems develop

Dr. Daniel J. Para answered:

Is it normal to have blood in stool after colonoscopy?

Sometimes

Feces
During a colonoscopy, your surgeon or gastroenterologist may have taken biospies or removed polyps. These will occasionally bleed, and result in blood in your stools. If the bleeding is associated with significant abdominal pain and cramping, notify your doctor immediately.

Dr. Peter Wilk answered:

What to do if I have blood in stool what could this be?

See a doctor

Blood
Blood in the stool is never "normal". However, most of the time it is not serious - hemorrhoids (swollen anal veins) are the most common cause. Warm baths with Epsom salts and a mild cream like anusol can help those. However, blood in the stool may be indicative of a colon polyp or tumor or inflammation of the colon. If it is persisting you should see a doctor for an examination. Peter Wilk, MD

What to do if I have blood in stool but clean colonoscopy?

Blood in stool

Blood
If the colonoscopy is negative and the bleeding is bright red and low volume it is likely hemorrhoidal in origin. At this early stage usually an anal ointment will help symptoms

What to do if I have blood in stool after taking a colon cleanser?

Nothing for now

Blood
Blood in the stool is never "normal". However, colon cleansing can aggrevate hemorrhoids (swollen anal veins) and cause bleeding. Warm baths with Epsom salts and a cream like Anusol will help. However, if the bleeding persists, there may be a colon polyp or tumor that is bleeding. If so, please see a doctor for an exam. all the best, Peter Wilk, MD

Blood
Blood in the stool is never "normal". Most of the time it is caused by swollen anal veins - hemorrhoids. Warm baths with Epsom salts and a cream like anusol help those. However, if there is a persistent discharge, there may be an underlying inflammation or infection - a type of colon inflammation or an anal infection like an abscess. It would be best to see a doctor for an exam.. Peter Wiik, MD
