Ok, so I know we aren't supposed to eat meats with caseings... But I really wanted a hot dog at this cook out we went to. We found skinless hot dogs.

It came out ok- No pain. But it was really red and watery. Normally with the colitis that means blood. Do you think it was the ketchup? Or could it be blood? I thought it was all the ketchup I put on it (they didn't have plain mustard and that is my favorite) but then when I ate another one the other day with less ketchup I had the same thing.

Today, I am feeling really light headed and I almost blacked out when I got out of bed to kiss my Husband.

Any suggestions? I really hope I don't have another ulcer somewhere in my digestive tract!!!

Meds just stopped working so I took the problem out! No more colon and all kinds of excitement!

I've never had a problem with hot dogs, and usually anything that goes in red comes out red.
 
The light headedness sounds like dehydration. The cookout was probably outside in the heat and you're having watery output, so make sure you're drinking plenty of fluids. If nothing has improved by tomorrow, I'd call your doctor to get checked.

i agree with cece about the dehydration and ketchup. Now that its summer you need to drink even more than before to keep up.
I eat lots of hot dogs, and knock on wood, havent had any problems.

I eat hotdogs on a regular basis, skin and all (no tomato sauce aka ketchup - why spoil the taste of the hotdog? lol).

As Cecilia said, if it goes in red, it usually comes out red :) I also agree with the dehydration too. Drink lots of fluids, preferably a sports drink to help replenish electrolytes as well, and if it doesn't go away, seek medical advice.
I have had an ileostomy for 33 years now due to UC.

I feel a little better today. I spent most of yesterday in bed. Next time I'll just use mustard and see what happens. Obviously it didn't make me feel so bad that I would stop eating hot dogs... We bought a whole pack and I don't have the money to let them go to waste! :)

Thanks for the advice. back to the old drawing board!

I eat hot dogs and brauts - no problems. In fact, just made brauts on the grill on Sunday at the Nascar track in MI while waiting to get out of the parking lot. We were starved and they were awesome - leftovers today for lunch.

When we go to the Brickyard, we know all of the back roads out of there and get right out of the traffic... we don't park at the track, but rather on a side street.  Michigan track is a different story tho - only one way in and one way out of the track so traffic bottlenecks horribly.   Besides, it gave us a couple of hours to visit with family we met up there from OH before leaving.
