What is going on with me? I just had a painful poop time and was shocked to my core when I was done! The color was an incredible color of green? Then there was a bunch of bright red blood in the mix? What is it? It was shocking and I am trying not to panic but I got this sort of really wierd feeling as well.

I feel creepy?

I drink alot of strawberry/watermelon flavored gatorade and it always turns my poo to a florescent green color.  So don't be too worried about the green color, it just be from something you ate or drank.  For the red color, was it bright red blood or a darker color red.  If it was bright red could be blood from a hemmoroid.  But it also could be caused by something you ate.  Have you eaten any beets or red licorice or anything like that? Glad to hear you made a appt, but I really wouldn't worry too much about the green color.

Ok good red jeep, I have to admit I get green poo with certain foods like avacodos and etc. It is just the fast transition time. Do you think your guts are probably torn (with the blood) from the fast transition time?

How do you tear a gut by going fast? The color was pretty bright. I think it's more the amount of blood. Blood is usually mucussy. This was thin. Right like I had a cut! But will it stop? I have been having my period for about 3 weeks now. It's not stopping. And there is no question where the blood came from. I am so afraid I can't get back on the toliet. I am just holding it. Mind over matter right now. Matter may when out before I get in the jeep though!lol

I have eaten nothing green. When I saw it I had 2 thought OH MY!! and Martha Steward might appreciate that green. I feel creepy?

Redjeep my gatorade is a pinkish color and turns my poops florescent green (so as you can see you don't have to eat green for that to happen). And it is sounding as if this blood is either a hemmoroid or a fissure. When its bright red it usually is from an area closer to the exit as they say. Let us know how the doc visit goes. Good luck!

Sounds like you have had such a fast transition that your undigested poo scratched your guts (breakfast cereals/fiber from fresh fruit can do this). It will take a bit to heal up, just depends on how much scratchy poo you have. If this is what is going on, it happens to me all the time. The green might just be from your bile duct, especially since you are having fast transition time. If so it might start burning when it comes out.

MMMNAVY that sounds horriable. I can do without the burning.

Doc. said not to worry about the color. If it was green it was just bile and not poop at all. Blood bothered him though. He says I either have a bacteria issue [infection?] or a flare. Now we decide what it is with lab work? Got the blood work done and doing a poop test tomorrow.

As far as the starving thing goes we have to slow the bowel down. He said eat many small meals. Like I was going to leave and go have a big meal or something. I weighed in at 100 lbs. His PA [I think you call him] didn't seem to understand why pain meds. wouldn't work. He's very young with lots of room to grow you know?

The funny thing is when the GI walked into the room He was wearing dresspants the same color of my poop this morning. I thought the color was haunting me or something. Like someone some where was having a big laugh. I had a hard time paying attention to what he was saying cause I couldn't take my eyes off his pants. Now I have this question Why would a GI wear pants the same color as bile?? I wanted to say something but didn't want to ruin his day you know?

Hahaha Redjeep you made me laugh so hard with your GI's green pants. I could just picture you saying "Well doc, it was about the same color as your pants". LOL

Could be something you ate, along with the bile in your stomach. Mine is a pretty green/yellow color right now. I ignore color for the most part now, I've had some interesting ones over the years. The only ones I pay attention to really is if there is blood, and how much!

Jen77 That is exactly what he said. Never stress over the color but the man doesn't have crohns. Funny though the color bothered me and the blood bothered him. You should have seen that green. Everywhere I look I see it. I will never feel the same about that color again!
But his pants were really creepy. It was procedure day I was only supposed to see his PA. When he walks in hes got these little bootys on his feet. It was as if he had been wading around in my little surprise this morning. Had he had a red shirt on I might have passed out.

I will say that this GI works really hard to keep me happy. I simply could not say anything. But it really makes you wonder. How does a med student choose "I wanna be a GI?" And I wanna sport the colors of my trade? Man needs a stylist. It was procedure day! How many of those people needed to see that color after a day of prep?

May be I'm just sensitive. I don't know? This is going to bother me all night. I feel like making my own suggestion box and leaving it in the waiting room. But then again his pants have given me something to worry over instead of the state of my health right now. Waiting to hear about test reports is hard.

Still afraid to let go. It scared me so badly I have not been able to go since. OH this could be like the hiccups? I scared myself [I can't say that can I].

I'm joking

Well you know as Kermit says: It ain't easy being green. ;)

I feel for those people having a procedure, that man needs some fashion lessons for sure! haha!

Red and green poop! Christmas colors! How fashionable. This is just as funny as the recent 'stripped poop' thread. Or it all would be funny if we didn't have CD!!

Red Jeep, it is ok. We are going to be here for you no matter what. In my personal experience it isn't that big of a deal. I think checking for infection is a good idea.

Hey guys. Got some results! No infection. So doc said it was a flare. Blood work came back full of weird numbers.

Redblood cell count is very low. Potassium way low. And something about inflamation.

The GI and I are locked in a battle. He wants another collonocopy[sp] or I begin preds. I really can't afford another scope and I hate preds. I am not being a very agreeable patient.

Is there no other way?

If your potasium and red cell counts are low and inflamation high it sounds like pred or passing out in random locations is in your future. The good news is you get to choose which one.

Just remember money isn't everything, being healthy is so important. Maybe ask him, if you go in and find inflammation would you treat me any different if you didn't go in and just went ahead and treated me now?? Am I making sense?

You'r making sense. Though I think he'd reach for preds first anyway.

I started the preds today. It's already causing problems in my mouth and knees. If the joint pain gets worse tomorrow I guess I'll call.

thank you

My last colonoscopy was last Sept. 07?

I know magic mouthwash will help the mouth, but I hate latican[sp] as much as preds. But the sores are starting to erupt in my throat. Preds is a crazy drug. It's fast. My bowels M. have gotten fewer in 24 hours but still a srtange form of D. Foamy like.

My joint pain is still increasing but I'm not ready to give in yet. The joint pain had started increasing before the preds. so I can't blame the drug entirly. I feel like I am walking bone on bone.

I pretty much know I'll have a weight gain on preds and I hope it happens soon. People are taking one look at me and wanting to stand away. Like their going to catch my crohn's or something.
