Patient :Hi. So months ago I started noticing a tiny tiny amount of blood. Like dots. Occasionally after bowel movement but only after wiping loads so I think that was the issue but I had received anal sex (protected) a month ago which was fine but I went out clubbing 4 days afterwards and got really drunk. When I woke up in the morning, there was this absolutely horrible burning sensation and that lasted for a week. One day. There was a lot of light coloured blood but it got less and less each time and now there's none. And the burning stopped aswell. Then I was fine for about 2 weeks. Then for the last 2 weeks now there has been a excessive amount of mucus with my stool. Sometimes I go to the toilet thinking I need to go but when I push. I just fart and then when I wipe there's the mucus. And the mucus when I do past stool is very visible and noticeable and there's a lot of it. In the last week I notice I feel a bit bloated after eating. I'm thinking about going to the doctors (just need to have time for a appointment since I have two jobs) but I would like to know what this could possibly be? Should I go to then doctors ASAP? Or can it wait till I get time? Can this be sorted with over the counter medicines so that I don't have to take time off work?
