Why Is Dark Blood Comming From Watery Stool?

Postby Caldwell » Sun Sep 03, 2017 12:11 am

My husband has had this happen several times and it is getting worse, he refuses to go to the doctor since I have been batteling breast cancer, can anyone tell us what this might be caused from? He states it is getting worse, lots more comming out and darker. Does not happen all the time but has several times this year, last time he went to doc she said his prostate was enlarged, gave him anitbotics and it helped I guess. He has no insurance and dont want to take off work to go to doctor, can anyone tell me what could this be? What should he do?

You should definitely get your husband to the doctor ASAP.
If possible, get him insurance.
Dark blood in stool is much worse than bright red blood.
Color of blood in stool determines the source of bleeding.
If it is bright red, then the blood is most likely from the rectum or somewhere near the anus, such as hemorrhoids.
If it is dark blood, such as your husband's, it is an indication of an internal GI (gastrointestinal) bleed.
It could be bleeding from his stomach, small intestines, colon, etc.
It's hard to determine the source since it's dark blood.
However, since it is getting worse, his bleeding could possibly be worsening also.
Is your husband showing any signs of severe blood loss such as dizziness, weakness, fatigue, and change in personality? If so, please send him to the ER.

Again, this is a troubling symptom that your husband is experiencing.
Get insurance if possible, and send him to the hospital ASAP.

Dark blood is one of those things i even check for and im 25.
