Is Rectal Bleeding Normal After A Colonoscopy
Colonoscopy: Will look for tumors or polyps in the colon. Most common cause of bleeding may be from hemorrhoids or anal fissure that may not be seen well on colonoscopy. Less common causes of colon bleeding could be vascular malformation or diverticulosis which can bleed intwrmittently & would not be seen at colonoscooy unless there was active bleeding at the time of the procedure.

Small bowel and anus: When a work up involves an EGD and colonoscopy, it misses the small intestines - a capsule endoscopy or bleeding scan would be needed to assess bleeding sites in the small intestines. As well, a colonoscopy may miss the otherwise obvious hemorrhoids or anal fissures which could bleed from the anus. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You are young: It is hard to imagine what could be bleeding in your colon, at your age and not seen by colonoscopy. The only thing I could think of is av malformation since they can't be seen once decompressed from bleeding. You have to discuss it further with your doctor and your gastroenterologist as to what it could be. Good luck. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Rectal bleeding, DRE found no evidence of piles but stool was dark. 30 y/o. Need colonoscopy. Cancer?????
Likely not: There are many reasons for rectal bleeding, including internal hemorrhoid, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulitis, among others. Colon cancer is certainly a reason, but at your age, unless you have a huge family history of colon cancer, it is way down on the list. You should get a colonoscopy for sure, but don't go into it with the worst case assumption Read more

Everytime I walk briskly on a treadmill, I have anal/rectal bleeding. I had colonoscopies and a fistula removed, this is still happening. Why? Thanks.
Consider hemorrhoids: I would suspect you have hemorrhoids and that vigorous activity is irritating the area. Take a stool softener, drink plenty of liquids, and if the bleeding continues it would be important to see a GI doctor and have a colonoscopy. Cancer, diverticulosis, and inflammatory bowel disease are other possibilities. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a colonoscopy d/t rectal bleeding dr said bleeding was from BP meds I take at night I had ulcers on the descending colon. What's the solution?
I am unaware of any BP med that would cause colonic ulceration. You CAN see that with non-steroidals like ASA, motrin etc.
Were the ulcers biopsied? That can be a sign of Crohns disease.
Where were the ulcers? If very low in the rectum can be from chronic constipation.

I have had rectal bleeding, on and off for several months. Along with bad stomach cramps after eating. Nothing on colonoscopy.
Above or below: Blood in the stool and pain after eating could be signs of a gastric ulcer, in addition to the colonoscopy, you probably need an EGD (Endoscopic Gastro-Duodenoscopy, camera from above) to rule out a bleeding gastric ulcer. These typically present with stomach pain that is worsened by eating and blood in the stool (usually dark black stools or hidden, occult, blood on lab testing). Read more
