Customer Question
I 'm a 64-year-old...

I 'm a 64-year-old male. I experienced rectal bleeding today when I had a bowel movement. I feel ok, there wasn't much blood. Is their a reason to be concerned?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Good

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had blockage in my arteries. But I have been getting regular treatment for that and my score is coming back normal. So no real problems there.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
