I had E. coli infection now have blood clots, what’s going on?

I am a 23 year old female i am 5’6″ I weigh 173 lbs my medications I am on consist of 30mg ER Cymbalta,Mitalax,Lactulose,Senkonot,and stool softeners. It started out 4 years ago when I had my daughter Via C-Section and got a E.coli blood infection with 6 blood transfusions, i am very Anemic always have been, 9 months after my infection they found a herniated disc in my L4-L5 region I had surgery to decrease the bulge to only return 4 months later after about a year of physical therapy Gabapentin, and no relief they did another MRI to find the disc bulging again so second surgery still maybe a month relief then i got on a pain management program that prescribed Morphine 30mg ER every 12hrs and 15 IR 1/2 tab every 8 hrs about two years into the program i couldn’t handle the pain meds and still had no relief and sever constipation, so I’ve been off for two or so years. I got the IUD in my arm and experienced frequent UTI and yeast infections and hormone imbalance was always 140lbs-145lbs so they took the IUD and referred me to a thyroid specialist and they tested my thyroid levels and said nothing was wrong with no explanation of the discharge and infections was told I have to live worth it my results as of 1/30/17 TSH 0.37 T3,TOTAL RSLT 140.6 and T4 TOTAL RSLT 7.3. I was put on the Nuvarin but stopped due to massive discharge,fatigue, severe constipation, and discomfort about a month ago i started yo gain weight now I’m ip to almost 40lbs at 172lbs.. I was referred to a gastroenterologist for a possible colonoscopy after being hospitalized for blood clots in my stool but I couldn’t flush my system with anything help me what’s going on?

If you have blood clots in stool when you have severe constipation can be due to hemorrhoids however there can also be other causes..
It can also be probably problem related with the digestive tract and most probably the lower digestive tract. that can be related to infections or obstructions…
So you should immediately consult a Gastroenterologist and get a colonoscopy done to rule out the exact cause and treatment can be done accordingly..

Hope this helps.
