So I've been good for over 3 weeks now...some gas now and then but nothing really bad. And yesterday I had this party over to my house and I drank and ate and all that...maybe a bit too much. This morning I had a loose stool half formed and then when I wiped it I noticed to small red .... dots on the paper. They looked solid, though they were really small. I spoke with a doctor he said it was just food. The stool colour was normal....I don't know where those dots came from....Do you think it could have been blood?
... I am so scared...again....damn!

Blood doesn't come out as a solid. Could easily be something from the food. No one fully digests everything in their food. You don't want to see food bits in the stool you have to chew more. A lot of things come out as they go down, so you don't break it up enough in the mouth you will see it when it comes out the other end.Now a few small drops of blood is pretty common as internal hemorrhoids are really common and can bleed from time to time and it is common to see that blood on the paper. More serious bleeding usually comes out with the stool rather than just seen on the toilet paper, and usually that blood is turning brown, not still really red.

....I thought so...the bits were bright red...soft....but you know how it is....after months of living in terror not knowing what's wrong with you ... you just freak out about anything...I ate tomatoes last night so I guess that's what it was....
