Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 months ago.

Do you have any bleeding from anus or blood while passing motion?

Any tightness on abdomen, bloating, gas, tenderness on abdomen?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
the abdomen feels a little tender to the touch -- no bleeding though
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 months ago.

The symptom complex of dull pain and slight tenderness on abdomen warrant high caution and thus evaluation would be warranted. You need an ultrasound and x-ray for ruling out injury to the rectum. The chance may not be high but an high caution is necessary as this may cause complications which warrant surgery, if detected late.
