I was diagnosed with an anal fissure 6 months ago hasnt been bugging me.Except for the past 2 weeks I just had a BM and lots of blood wasin the toilet bowl, and my stools were straeked with blood. I have been having blood almost everyday for 2 weeks, and yesterday had some on my undies. There is a moderate amout of blood when im on the toilet after i have passed my BM. ( sorry i know its graphic) I saw my doc on friday for other reasons and told him about the bleeding. I have a scope july 22nd. But should I be concerned with the moderate amount of blood, I hate it it scares that **** out of me.
I may be a bit stresses today my Identical twin is having a Colonoscopy as I type this. She is getting tested for Crohns, so I really hope she doesnt have it.

Well in all honesty I wear a pad daily because I leak blood (in addition to what you are describing). I think going to see your doc or er if it gets any worse.

I'm new here and to the crohns family so I may not have the best answers since I don't have much experience. It's good you told your doc about it. If it gets too bad maybe you should go to the ER or call your doc. When I was bleeding really bad they wanted to do bloodwork to make sure I wasn't losing too much blood. Luckily I wasn't. Others may have a different opinion, but if you feel you're bleeding too much it's better to get it checked out. I hope you feel better soon.

Before I got my Crohn's under control with Humira, I bled each and every day large amounts of blood with every bowel movement for about 15 or 16 years. The toilet bowl water would be completely red. It is scary and shocking at first and then you kind of get used to it. I know that sounds weird, but you really do after a while.

Certainly keep an eye on it and notice how you are feeling. If you begin to feel worse, put in another call to your doctor. Take care and I hope it gets under control soon.

You would think so, but not too much actually. I mean I think my hemoglobin would be around 9 or 10 which is not too bad at all. I think I was just lucky and replentished my blood loss quickly. The other odd thing is that I barely eat much in the way of protein either. Never have.
