10pm update. Condition has stabilized nicely during the day. Had 2 stools since 9am, some blood, not nearly as much. Been focusing on getting energy levels back up by eating easily digestible food, several intakes a day. The nurse for the 3rd GI doc called twice today (after I called in am), first to relay the doc's first advice, then again to check in for followup info. For once, I was given some diet advice that might help. She advised to avoid anything that would thin the blood (take only Tylenol), avoid alcohol, TylenolPM is ok, diet soda is ok. Been eating pasta, chowder, bean dip, shrimp, muffin. Feel much better tonight, just a couple of small cramps, no gas yet. If I have any dizziness I'm to check in. My next GI appt is a week away with regular doc, so that's the next step. Hopefully all will settle down for a week. Avoid stress, eat frequent digestible meals, watch myself and get my strength back. Thanks to all for you input. The GI doc is checking to see if I can tolerate Imuran, hopefully something with help with this.
