Hi All,

I have an ileostomy (almost a year) and I am currently flaring. The next step is probably a permanent stoma for me. I'm bleeding a lot. The suppositories used to help, but now, not so much. I have a Dr. appointment next Thursday. How do I know if I'm bleeding too much to wait until then? I don't have a fever and my energy is good. I'm really nervous about seeing so much blood. Sounds like I'm pouring a cup of water into the toilet but I'm really bleeding twice a day. Help!

Are you waiting to complete j-pouch surgery? What do you have now? A loop ileo? An end ileo? It's possible the bleeding is perfectly normal. Did you see valli's post about rectum bleeding post jpouch step 1? It's a few posts down on page 1.
