      As most of you are aware, my surgeon left my anus intact when he did the total colectomy with end ileo.  From time to time, I bleed, bright red blood, from my anus.  I believe it is hemorrhoids.  Anyone else have this problem?  I have no pain.  The stoma always has worked great.  My next follow up appointment with him is next month.

     Bumping this up to see if any responce.  I would like to add that my back also bothers me a lot.  Thought this was due to either osteoporosis or arthritis.  Scheduled for MRI this week but bleeding quite a bit today.

I believe I have the same situation as you.  My ileo is over four years old and I've always had some blood mixed in with my mucous discharge.  I just chalk it up to an acceptable trade-off.

I agree; it's probably just irritation. However, if it bothers you get your surgeon to check it out.

     OK, thanks suebear and Tom.  I noticed bumps that look like boils around my vaginal area.  Going to the gyn doctor tomorrow.  He wanted me to have a transvaginal ultrasound back in August but my colorectal surgeon said it was too soon after surgery.   I did have an MRI of the pelvic area back in November but they couldn't do the contrast because they couldn't find a vein rolleyes .  I suppose that would show if there were anything going on.  The techs who performed the MRI were very incompetent...had me under that dome an hour and a half and STILL didn't do the abdomen..ugh.

Hey christine..Its been 8 months since my surgery. I still have some blood and mucus. Ihad quite a bit coming out months after surgery. I was going to see my g.i. but my body had its own plans. During my three weeks in the hospital on antibiotics ....the bleeding and mucus stopped completely. When i came home..it started again?? I dont get it?  I was still on antibiotics for another two weeks. I was told by my surgeon (in may) that he saw I  had severe hemmroids and might have to have them surgically removed too. My bladder is still numb so when i urinate..I put alot of pressure on my abdomen and it seems to aggrivate my anus stub. Wish I had some advice for you..sorry
