Patient : I am a 31 year old female. I have blood (sometimes red, and sometimes maroon) and mucus after I have a bowel movement. A lot of times the blood and mucus are mixed together, They are sticky strings. I also get bad abdominal cramping. I had a colonoscopy and they only found internal hemorrhoids. I know that there is something else besides the hemorrhoids. I am scheduled to see a new GI doctor on the 15th. I can go for months with no symptoms at a time. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?
