    Blood In Stool
    EthansDad04 posted:
    Hi Everyone,
    I am a fairly heathy 25 year old male, about 2 weeks ago i was mugged which resulted in 14 stitches to the cheek, broken nose, and a concussion. I started bleeding during bowel movements 3 days ago, quite alot of blood, it is bright red causes me to feel that i have to have a bowel movement when only blood comes out, could this be related to the mugging and how serious could this be...... im not a fan of doctors probing my rectum, so i try to avoid it at all costs

    Hi EthansDad,

    Considering the amount of blood and the mugging, yes, see your doctor. This needs to be attended to as soon as possible.

    Take care of Ethan's dad, okay?
