How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Did you have colonoscopy? What is your stool like now? When did it start? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any other medications? Any family medical history?

I had my colonoscopy done today ist it normal to have moucus and little bit of blood in the mucous?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They didn't find anything while doing but they did a biopsie
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It is not normal that there is blood. Since they didn't find anything, it could be due to colitis (inflammation of the colon). The result of the biopsy will tell you more detail.

Yeah they said that they can tell that my colon is still healing from the inflammation and they took some samples

Should I be worried about the blood now it was not much and in the yellow mucus
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

You don't worry about it. When it is healed, the blood will be gone.

Is there a way to treat hiatel hearnia
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

If you have GERD, you should take over-the-counter proton pump inhibitors include lansoprazole (Prevacid 24HR) or omeprazole (Prilosec OTC). It reduces your symptoms but doesn't cure. For the cure, you need to have a surgery if the medications don't help you.

Oh okay it's probably not a easy surgery right
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

When the medication doesn't work, your doctor will recommend you. There is a laparoscopic surgery for it. Try the medication first.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay i will ;) I already have omeprazole do you think it is okay to take with my colon still healing...
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It is okay.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay thank you for your awesome help one last thing I did a mistake and had regular food after colonoscopy and then I was reading to stay on a diet that's easy on the colon.
