anal bleeding
« on: June 11, 2007, 05:08:44 PM »
Hallo Guys,

Has been a long time since i have not written anything. but i have been checking the site quite regularly actually.
I just want to ask if anyone has also had problems with anal bleeding. Last week i had gone to the doctor, because i had developed some kind of swelled spots around my rectum. He prescribed me some cremes and than told me to wait and see what happens in a week. Well, first the swelled areas began to secret pus... and today i have basically shit blood...

I have read about things from HPV to anal cancer.
I just thought that mine was a perianal abscess, but this blood thing has really changed the view.
i will be going to the doctor in the morning.

Hope to receive some feed back.

I'm glad you are going to see the doctor right away.
There are so many things that can cause the bleeding, it could be nothing more than a hemorrhoid, but get it checked and hope it is nothing.
Ask your doc to test you for HPV and also to give you a pap.
I just had a pad done a couple of weeks back and the results were abnormal.  I have a follow up with a specialist now.
Good luck

Hey O!

Matty the Damned is delighted to hear from you. He's less pleased to hear about your bleeding bunghole. You should show that thing to your doctor.

It is absolutely delightful to hear from you! I had wondered how you were doing.

Sorry to hear about the anal problems though. There are a number of things that can act like this, so I would definitely have the doc have a look-see again - and let him know what has passed (no pun intended).

I hope you check in more often now. It is really good to see you again.

Hi o, it's nice to see your post, but sorry to hear about the anal sores.  I hope it's nothing serious.  I've had some irritation now and again down there but it doesn't secrete any puss so it may not be the same thing.  I was given some steroid ointment and it seems to clear it up quickly.  Let us know how it goes.

Hallo again,
thank u for the welcome ceremony :-)

I had an operation today, cause they could not really examine the anus because of a lot of pain,
so they made an operation.
The weird thing is that even though there are still two locations around my anus which r secreting puss, the doctors couldn't find and abscess...
Instead they found out that the bleeding was due to a bruise on the interior of the anus.
Guess what?
That bruise has been done by a stupid anal activity of me with a guy who basically wanted me to be passive in the course.
I am not used to it and he was very harsh with his fingers, and than tried to ...k me. But i couldn't manage anything...
It was 2,5 months ago, and i have had all sorts of pain till now.
i was embarrassed to confess that it might be result of a sexual encounter.

Well, it seems i still have my puss, but i will get some medication so that my anus will rest.
And they told me it will take a month till the bruise will heal itself, but might also bleed and there might also be puss also in the blood.

bloody o is now gonna get some rest.
x to all.

"o" (love that screen name!) I'm glad to hear it's not something more serious, though I'm not diminishing the pain you are in at the moment.  Definitely could have been worse.

And yes, discussing anal stuff can seem embarrassing but we must all remember that most medical people have already heard and/or read about  things that would seem unusual to the masses.  I don't think I've ever had any doctor make an odd face at me.
