I've been having rectal bleeding for the past two weeks.

Customer Question

I've been having rectal bleeding for the past two weeks. After I finish going to the bathroom theres lots of blood in the toilet bowl. This isn't the first time its happened but its been several months since its been this bad. Last time I had this I also had very bad stomach pain and ended up having my appendix removed as they thought that may be the cause. This time I have still had stomach pain but not as bad as then.
