Did you mean to post this in the Ulcerative Colitis forum with your other posts?

It doesn't really seem to fit here in Lupus.

Hi Pringlez:

I think you might want to ask the folks in the crohns forum or ulcerative colitis forum. Normally in like over 95% of lupus patient do not get blood in their stools.

We can at times have GI issues, but in the 26 years that I've had lupus I've never had blood in my stool, nor have I talked to anyone who has.

Sorry, I can't be of any help to you.
