Iv had an ileostomy for 9 years but still have my rectum. over the last year or so i have begun to excrete small amounts of blood from it, at first it was only every few weeks. but now i get the feeling of needing to race to the toilet (something i havent felt for 9 years!!) about 5-10 times a day to excrete from my back passage.. its still only a small amount of blood but the frequency is worrying?
has anyone else experienced this? does it mean there is recurrant disease in my rectum now??

CD for 15 Years, Ileostomy for 9.
7 Re-sections since then and just started on Methotrexate!

Yes, it sounds like rectal disease BUT this is easily manageable. Let your GI know and he can prescribe a treatment for you. It doesn't mean it will be chronic but you need to get control of it.

dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998

1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics
