Hello and welcome to HW, it is great to hear about the few problems in so many years I can only hope for the same. My bloodowrk that I had 1 month after my ileostomy reversal (which was 2 months ago)showed that I am anemic, I use to be then with diet I was able to fix that (I use to be able to tolerate many veggies before my revesal surgery red meat more than 2 times a week bothers my gut or it did before surgery anyway...trying to still eat a bland diet). Not having your ileum can affect absorption of certain vitamins and minerals iron being one of them B12 another but you are having that supplemented. To increase your red count I would suggest iron suppliments (your DR can test for different types of anemia, not all are fixed by iron...and iron can cause C). Certain foods such as red meat and spinach are rich in iron, spinach has calcium, B6, riboflavens etc in it...if you can tolerate it that is. The color of the blood in the stool can usually inform the dr if the blood is from the upper or lower GI tract. red blood is usually from inflammation in the large intestine, anal fissures, or hemmorhoids, (not sure if they left any colon/rectum in when they did your surgery. If the blood looks like coffee grounds that usually indicated bleeding higher up in the GI tract (most commonly the small intestine) however I am unsure what it would appear like in an ostomy bag since I had no visible bleeding when I had my temp ostomy. I would definitly have your GI do a colonoscopy, SBFT, and/or CTE to check on your disease and if it has progressed and to what severity.
I hope things get back on track for you its good to hear good stories post op as opposed to the horror show I have gone through this year, hopefully when I am fully healed up I will have a nice long remission...at least long enough to have a child or 2 with my husband.
