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.

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.

Heavy rectal bleeding for almost 3 weeks 3-4 x a day. Colonoscopy 10/28/13 no polyps etc. Any idea? I'm beyond worried
You are young: It is hard to imagine what could be bleeding in your colon, at your age and not seen by colonoscopy.

Likely not: There are many reasons for rectal bleeding, including internal hemorrhoid, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulitis, among others.

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 more
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?

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.

Rectal bleeding warrants investigation. It is unlikely that you have colon cancer and colonoscopy is probably not required, however, you still need to be evaluated for the cause of rectal bleeding. It may be hemorrhoids, even that needs to be treated. If your current doctor is providing satisfactory care, it is reasonable to see another doctor.
