I had a bad evening. Ate something I really wasn't supposed to, have no idea what I was thinking. Guess I had been doing so well lately that I thought I could eat just about anything. Well bean dip and chips is still a no no! I got REALLY sick, must have had D a good 20 times in a matter of a few hours. With the usual cramping up.
 
Finally it was all passing (I mean I think I was cleaned out enough for a scope, who knew bean dip would be such a good cleanser!). All that was coming out was mucous at the end. Here is what scared me though. No bleeding at ALL during the attack, until the end. That's when I noticed the mucous had some blood in it. Although my bottom was VERY sore as you can imagine, I did not see any blood unless I passed the mucous. I guess I could have a small cut on the inside? It's possible. But because of my history of a GI bleed, I was scared to go to sleep last night. But it was hardly enough blood to send me running to the ER either. Just small amounts mixed with the mucous, nothing like my GI bleed. This morning I'm just passing a lot of gas, but nothing else. I'm going to go on a Boost diet today to give things a "rest" in there.
 
Seeing any amount of blood scares me though. I would call my doctor but I don't want to if it was just a little cut in there and it's stopped now. Although I don't know where it was coming from. Also even if it was from higher up, Crohn's can do that without it being an actual bleed right? And still stop and be okay once the "offending" food is out of the system?

Was it bright red blood, that could have been from internal hemmies. If it was darker blood that meant it was coming from deeper in your intestines. When I have alot of D, I usually get minor irritations that can sometimes bleed a little.
Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.

Yep it was bright red. My GI bleed was bright red too though (and coming from my TI), but this was because it was coming out so fast it didn't have time to turn dark! But this was just very small amounts so I don't think it was the same at all. I'm really hoping it was just from all the D. I guess it's just easy to jump to the worse when you have a history of the worst!

Thanks, helps to know that someone else bleeds a little when they get a lot of D!

BUMP ~ Anyone else get a little blood with a bad attack, and be okay afterwards (in that the bleeding stops?). Just gives me a little reassurance.

I'm doing better tonight. Ate a little bit of dinner since I did well with the Boost all day. No more bleeding, but then again I didn't have anymore bowel movements either. Have a little bit of gurgling though, so I'm hoping I'm not going in to a major flare. Gave the bean dip to the family! LOL

In my 16 yrs with crohns, the only thing I've found to stop all my bleeding and keep it stopped is taking bee propolis everyday, it's helped cut back some daily BM's and it also stopped all my pain, which I had in my lower back (crying on the toilet with every bowel movement, the pain was so bad), that's all behind me now and my GI is thrilled and encourages me to continue with it...I didn't take the propolis for one day to see what would happen and the first thing that came back was the blood.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Bee propolis is a natural anti-inflammatory, it's not recommended people who have bee allergies to use though, so avoid it if you have bee allergies or are pregnant or breast-feeding.

google bee propolis and you'll see alot of interesting info on it, I've been using if everyday for almost 5 yrs and my GI said to stick with it, he said even if it didn't help with my CD symptoms, it's still an excellent dietary supplement since IBDers tend to get everything they need via food alone...thankfully it does help for my CD symptoms though.

When my body gets stressed or I get in a stressful situation, I find I bleed randomly, and when the stress is over it stops and I am fine again. so maybe it was just a stress reaction to the stomach being so upset and kicking so much stuff out of your system....for me thats what happens (every time I have to go visit the in-laws and fly to thier city and get dragged around to visit all the relatives and basically they forget I am sick, that kicks up my bleeding..go figure, now I get scared to visit them....but whenever I come back home is completely stops) same bright red type blood you mention.

Lady G, I can relate to the visiting of the inlaws. They also tend to "forget" about me being sick as well. I can have a minor flare from them just visiting us HERE. LOL But it sounds like what you discribed, since any bleeding seems to be gone now.

Also I gave my son the bean dip, since I obviously can't eat it. Several hours later he threw up and had diahrrea. So now I wonder if that bean dip was just NO good! Even though it's a good brand and I just bought it at the store. Who knows? He's also fine now. In a way I hope it was the bean dip for him too, I don't think I could handle a round of the stomach flu right now. If it ain't one thing it's another I swear!

wow...thats bad luck with that dip...hopefully it was just a bad batch that got to you all and nothing major.
Yeah, doesn't help when hubby lets them drag me around and not let me sleep and all that too, but since it always goes away its not THAT bad, at least it only bleeds and no pain... I just figure next time I will be a little more strict on what I let them do to me and all whether they like it or not.
