Basically, food can take between 24 -72 hours (according to most sources) to be ready to come out the other end. If you are constipated though it could be backed up a bit anyway, and be even longer as it 'queues up'. So, fibre eaten today might start having an effect in 3 or so days ! BY the way, totally non-medical assessement made by me then about 3 or 4 days, just going by my own observations. Oh and one banana and a portion of peas isn't enough in one day anyway.....its a start.....but not enough....
    I don't eat veg/fiber as often as I probably should so I was expecting everything to come bursting out really quickly

    And I had the peas with a meal (pie) not on their own, my mum isn't that cruel to me although I do occasionally like eating frozen petit pois from the bag

    Toby we are getting close to shutting this thread in a desperate attempt to get you to move on with your life and take better care of yourself.

    You are still not doing anything and until you do you cannot expect results.

So maybe a very small amount of blood, not enough to see on the paper, can actually cause what appears to be a lot of blood on the stool?
    That is in no way a valid comparison to a tube and the material passing over the wound anyway but I think the question is more that about why you even did this in the first place. Compulsion certainly, but think about cutting your skin to test and how that is a worrying sign of the lengths some go to. Stop yourself making such invasive forms of tests.

    Please don’t do that, I’m seeing a doctor tomorrow to ask about therapy and upping the dosage on my medications

    How about I try and take a break from here? Unless of course something huge happens but I doubt it will. Maybe it’ll do me some good

    Re: Have I got rectal cancer?

    Um if you don't eat enough soluble and insoluble fiber everyday and drink enough water you can become constipatedc, also stress and anxiety can cause it. I agree I think this thread should be closed. OP had tests done and was told hemorrhoids. Everyone pretty much said same thing.
