Jelena, I've had a serious GI bleed, so I can relate! I went undiagnosed for many years (told it was IBS). After about
8 years I started to bleed. I filled the toliet up with nothing but bright red blood 5 times over a few hours. I got light headed and my husband called 911. I was admitted to the hospital and lost half of all the blood in my body. So these things can be emergencies, it just depends on how much blood your losing. Which is so hard to know. There are times now where I bleed a slight bit, and I let my doctor know. But nothing like my GI bleed. They had to go in with a scope and they found an ulcer that was bleeding in my TI. My GI fixed it and stopped the bleeding.
So I'm really hoping that's not the case for you. But yes, keep an eye on it tonight like the doctor ordered!
