Hey

I have a question for all ostomy people: do you ever have bloody ileostomy output and what may cause this?
I have recurrent episodes of luminal bleeding, NOT from the stoma itself.
I dont have chrons or colitis so I dont know what causes this bloosy output.
Also, I am not sure if the amount of blood is relevant at all. Here is a link to my blog where you can see the three pictures with the bloody ostomy output.

We have no good idea what may cause this bleeding.

The actual amount of blood in the bag was twice than what you can see in the pictures.

Thanks for sharing ideas...

Sarah

BTW. I dont have an infection (only SIBO), and I have had these epsiodes for several months now.
My underlying disease is a diffuse motility disorder.

Peltz,

Good to hear from you. Wish it was under better circumstances. SOrry I cannot get into that site to see the bloody bag pics. I cannot imagine what the blood would be from. Wish you well.

I have been having horrific issues with my stoma all of a sudden narrowing; effluent basically cannot come out. This all started suddenly March 11 when the stoma basically swelled shut. Then I had an sbo over Easter. May have to get stoma redone. And other stuff may be at play. I had been so well for 4.5 years am soooo glad I traveled. We live with tentativeness hanging over us at all times. I hope you get some answers. Rosemary

I had bloody output in the hospital post op and my surgeon suggested it might have been from eating roughage too early on - maybe something you ate snagged along your small bowel? How long did this output last?

no, I never eat aything with a red color.
And I hadnt eaten that day at all, so basically, this was mainly blood that came out.

Peltz, Thanks for the pics and catching up with me. Good to hear from you. THAT IS A LOT OF BLOOD, MY GOD!

I HOPE your doc is dealing with this. I would be at the ER with that much blood. Then again, would the ER have a clue what to do? Rosemary
