New to this forum everyone, so good day! 
 
Crohn's patient for 25 years.  Two resections.  Bad anemia with blood transfusions and IV iron. 
 
Question:  Can IV iron cause black stools too?  Seems like it shouldn't since it bypasses the GI tract, but just wondering... confused
 
Thanks for the advice

Hmmm good question. I had a iron infusion last year and to tell you the truth I don't remember if it caused dark stools. I am sure someone will be along soon with the answer, I am interested in hearing the answer too.
