For those unfamiliar with me. My daughter had a recent 10 day hospital stay for an abdominal abscess with enteric fistula. She had it drained, and has been on Flagyl and Prednisone for about 5 weeks now.
A couple of weeks ago, she twice had abit of blood after a BM. Most here suggested that it might be a hemorroid, or fissure.
Today, she had quite abit more blood, again at the end of a BM. It's bright red, so I'm guessing that means fresh. She has never otherwise had any bleeding or mucus. I really doubt that it's a hemorroid, as she says she feels no discomfort anywhere. She feels fine, and has no pain during a BM or otherwise.
Does anyone know if this is cause for alarm, or what the blood could be from? I'm guessing a fissure, as her BM's a quite larger in diameter than she's used to. If so, will this heal on it's own?
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 2000mgs of Pentasa.
