My husband fell last...

My husband fell last night fro our semi truck and for the last three hours he is having bright red rectal bleeding. Is this a concern and should we seek medical attention

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

He fell about 16 hours ago and the bleeding started about 3 hours ago. Every time he passes gas it comes out with red blood

He’s 44. Not dizzy or weak. Bleeding is only present after he passes gas. No obvious injury possible a bruise is starting over left hip area. No illnesses.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
We did wake up to blood on the sheet as well.

Dear friend, in this case it is a post-traumatic rectorrhagia, it is probable that there is still active bleeding, this is generated by the trauma, it is necessary to perform an emergency touch and identify the bleeding, start with intravenous treatment to stop the bleeding and require an examination to know the origin of the bleeding.
So I suggest you go to the emergency room.

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.
