Is It Normal To Diverticulosis
Stool is kinda black / loose .EDG normal. found sludge on gallbladder. Hida scan normal.. Have diverticulosis and hiatel hernia. Should I be concerned?

If you just had an EGD it is unlikely that you have a bleeding ulcer, but if it was done a while ago this could be a new development.

Rectal bleed?: if the blood you noted were bright red, then the bleeding would likely be from a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure, either of which can result from straining to pass a difficult stool. If the blood were more black and created an entirely black movement, the blood would be coming from an upper tract source such as an ulcer. Bleeding from diverticuli is rather dramatic and scary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
