I went back and read your earlier messages...hoping to get a more complete picture of what is causing your rectal bleeding and pain.

You mentioned that you have had 2 prior surgeries. Were these surgeries done abdominally (laparotomy) or laparoscopically? Would you care to share why these surgeries were done?

You mentioned that you were told that you did not have endometriosis. Have you ever been treated for endometriosis in the past? Do you experience increased pain when you have your period?

Have you requested copies of your medical records from doctors you have been to? Have you requested copies of your surgical and pathological reports from Medical Records at the hospital(s) where your surgeries were done? You have a right to request and receive copies of all of these records. If a video was done of your surgery, you may be able to request a copy of that as well. All of these comprise your medical history. If you have not done this yet, I encourage you to do so.
