Patient : I hurt my back a couple weeks ago. Went to my Dr got an mri and seems to be a lower lumbar issue. A bulging or ruptured disc or degenerative disease. I was given hyrdocodone and skelaxin. But in the past couple of days I have seen a significant amount of blood in the toilet after a bowel movement. Not in the stool but in the water. Could this be caused by the back injury or a reaction to the meds?
