So I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2006. I have had two colonsocopies since the first one that diagnosed me (three total all by different doctors). The second two colonoscopies the doctors said that I had no signs of Crohn's (visually), but the biopsy from the second one indicated crohn's. I have had what I thought was a flare up (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, weakness, etc) for the past two weeks and I dont understand how I can have no visual signs of crohn's from this mornings colonoscopy. The doctor thinks it may have been a bacterial infection causing the symptoms but I never ran a fever. Anyway, all of that is one thing. Another thing is I have passed nothing but blood and mucus since this mornings colonoscopy. I have never done this after a colonoscopy before. I would not be worried but the colonoscopy was over twelve hours ago and I have eaten two meals since. There is no actual stool passed either. Has this happened to anyone else?

I also had trouble keeping the prep down last night and started seeing blood in my vomit. Kind of thought it was because of all the vomiting. I forgot to mention it to my doctor because I didnt think it was very serious. Now I am starting to regret that. Does anyone think that may have been related to the blood I am passing now?

A little blood is pretty common, as they remove tissue for biopsies. 12 hour travel time isn't too out of the ordinary, for what I know. I don't know about the blood in your vomit, it's happened to me once or twice, but it was never very much blood so I didn't get it investigates.

that sounds pretty normal.. i mean you were kinda empty from the prep, meals since take a while to get that far, disturbing the bowel with a scope can make it stop for a bit, lube used on the scope may look like mucous when it comes out, if a tiny amount of blood , could be from biopsy sites, or just rough treatmnet with the scope at the anus or rectum... gas , they inject air to open things up to see better.. unless your crapping large amounts of blood which could signal a perforation, i personally would not worry but i aint no dr.

I always have bleeding after a scope due to internal hemmroids. They never really give me problems except for after the nearly 30 scopes I have had over the past 6 years. You may have some mild onese and not realize it. Funny thing also is that it seems that when I am flaring the hardest, my scopes usually seem to come up clean. Then when I think that I am doing good and having a follow up scope from the last one I end up having damage show up. This disease is so weird and you can't let yourself get too drawn into the test results because this disease is sometimes hard to see. You know how you are feeling and if you are not getting the treatment you deserve, you need to keep calling your doctor. If they will not help, it is time to do some second opinions.
Also, don't be too worried about not being able to keep the prep down easily. I don't forsee anyone ever drinking that stuff for taste or fun. Especially if you had the big gallon prep that you mix with lemonade, that stuff is terrible. I almost always throw up with the prep and I will never do the gallon prep again. I still have a hard time drinking lemonade and I can also advice against trying to mix the small bottle of prep call fososoda with coke. Talk about really throwing up and almost taking away my love for the sweet nectar of the Gods.

Thanks for the replies ya'll. As of this morning I am still passing blood and mucus, and my doctor called me (on his own) to tell me that he is calling in a prescription for enemas. he wants m,e to do two a day for five days. I feel like there is something he isnt telling me about my scope. :(

I'm always puzzled when DRs say there's no evidence of CD after a colonoscopy. There's at least 20 feet of bowel that they haven't visualized - why do they insist that CD must be in the colon??

I hope you are feeling better soon.

Same thing happened to me a few years ago... took a blood/mucous/stool sample to the lab and it tested positive for c.diff. My doctor was shocked, as was I.

Did your doctor order a stool culture and c. diff toxin tests?

Any fever 101 degrees or more? Any nausea? Any abdominal pain?
