Hello. I welcome you to icliniq.

Actually the chronic problem of gas you mention is common in some one with overweight to obese-as in your case may be. Since your weight appears to be way beyond normal and this has definitely health consequences if not controlled.

The blood in stool you mention, is somewhat alarming, and requires a thorough in person examination of the bottom, and looking for the causes such as anal fissure, hemorrhoids, to some serious disorders like inflammatory bowel disease.

To summarize I want you to go and meet a gastroenterologist in your local area and get yourself examined to determine the cause. For your and foresee physician's ease just discuss above mentioned causes with him or her.

So to finalize, the gas problem is benign (non alarming), but the blood you mention is alarming and need to be investigated. I hope this will help

The Probable causes:

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth

Regarding follow up:

Follow up after getting examined by physician in person
