Sudden rectal bleeding and gas pain
I've read some stuff on the internet so far, and the only conclusion I have reached is that he could have hemorrhoids - I know that bright-red blood can be an indication of them, which is what he has.
And I don't know if this helps at all, but my boyfriend is notorious for delaying the passing of a stool...basically, he holds it for a long time, sometimes hours. But he is not constipated nor does he have diarrhea. His only symptoms are the bleeding of bright-red blood and gas pains.
Even his dad said it could be hemorrhoids; I doubt it's anything threatening, but I still worry about him.
Any advice would be immensely appreciated - reassurance is what I'm searching for; please, he is only 17 and I worry about him very badly when something goes haywire.
Anyone know what might be the problem?
