gumby44 - When the ulcer in your small intestine bleeds, what colour is the blood? Is it bright red or more a dark red/brown colour?
I suspect my bleeding is coming from higher up (where my Crohn's is located) but my GI Dr said it couldn't because the blood would be brown. After finding out that my system moves fast I'm more inclined to think my GI doctor is wrong.
Your GI is correct, regardless of how fast your system moves, if bleeding is comming from higher up in the small intestines the color is a darker red...bright red bleeding could be from disease activity lower in the intestinal tract colon/rectom region or even from hemmies or fissures.
