Problems with loose stools.

Tags: Digestion

Problems for months with loose stools/blood/incontinence from back passage/also really horrendous cramp in back passage every few days which reduces me to tears.

I have a history of bowel cancer in family, my mother died 2004. Feel too disgusted to see gp. I'm 64.

    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

Your symptoms could be due to many things. At this time a Doctor is the only person who can diagnose and more importantly treat the problem. As we get older our body goes through many changes and your symptoms need to be investigated by your Doctor.

I suspect your mind will not rest until you take the step to call your GP practice and make an appointment. The links below may offer you some support in the meantime. Please contact us again if you require further assistance.
