I had a resection in October of last year and was feeling great.  The past two weeks I have noticed that my "crohns" pain has returned and over the past few days I have noticed blood in my stool along with having to go about 10 times a day.
I have had CD for five years and never had blood in my stool so I am kinda freaking out.  Last night there was a lot, but I am not feeling pain when I go to the bathroom. I am going to the see the GI tomorrow.
I know I am in a flare but I am wondering if anyone has experienced this during a flare.  Even with all my previous flares, I never bled.

I bleed really badly during a flare...I'll go literally about ten times every hour I'm awake and most every time it's just a big bowl of blood I'm left looking at. I've had to get two blood transfusions from it.
I think a lot of people bleed which makes sense since considering how severe inflammation can get.
I hope you guys can find out what exactly is going and get the proper treatment. I'm really sorry that's happening to you..
