I had a lot of bright red blood and it was coming from way up in my TI. It was just coming out so fast that it didn't have time to turn dark. I was hospitalized, and they had to go in and cauterize an ulcer that was gushing. So now I pay attention to how much blood there is, rather then just the color.

If it really is a lot of blood I'd really push to talk to a doc, see what they recommend you doing. I ended up losing half of all the blood in my body, and was seriously anemic for about 6 months (they let me build myself back up with iron supplements). Sever bleeding can be dangerous, so it's worth getting in touch with that doc. Good luck!
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Taking Asacol, Questran, Toprol XL (for high blood pressure). Tapered off prednisone a month ago!
