Hi All. After waking up in December with a bright red pool of blood under my derrier I went to see a specialist. I had had stinging up my rectum (about 4 inches) for ages. A partial Colonoscopy and barium x ray found nothing. However after the bleed they found 3 of the blighters which were banded. I was also sent for a CT scan (negative) Well 10 weeks on and i am still stinging up there. If I do not have a bowel movement for a day then utter calm but after one it stings all day. I can't get anither appointment until end of July? I have also tentatively been diagnosed with IBS and i also have anxiety and depression (full house then!) Anyone shed some light on what to do? By the way I never noticed any blood or bands down the pan after the procedure???Thanks C
