I have had my ostomie for almost 3 years now and last night while I was bathing I had blood come out of my anus, I felt it squirt out. Then during the night it leaked on my panties. I have never had this happen before and it is scary, have any of you ever had this happen this long after surgery? I am to see my colon rectal Doctor on the 26th of this month, but I need some reassurance now. Thank you all confused
P.S. I have a colostomy due to colon cancer.

I suggest you call your doctor and ask them, might not be anything to worry about but it is always best to check in with your doctor anytime there is something new like this.
Sigmoid Colostomy / Crohns / Type 1 Diabetic / Ostioarthritus / Fibromyalgia / Asthma / High Blood Pressure / High Colesterol / Migraines. Ain't life a joy?

Hi! GRMA 25,

How are you doing now?  What did your doctor say about the bleeding situation?  Would greatly appreciate it if you can give me some pointers.
