I am 42-years-old, for the last year or so I have been having very loose stools that border on diarrhea. My first trip to the Dr turned me off on going back because he told me I was constipated. Well a couple weeks ago it went from just loose to the entire toilet bowl being full of bright red blood for 2 1/2 days. After that it was nothing but mucus which finally the blood subsided. The hospital put me on antibiotics and did a CT scan refereed me to a GI (who i have not got to see yet) he ordered stool cultures then MAYBE a colonoscopy. I am still having the loose stools and nausea and it gets worse if i eat REAL food. I have been trying to stick to a liquid , lactose and glutton free, and BRAT diet but it doesn't seem to be helping.
