I lose so much blood every day, much more than when I had my period, so I am wondering if I should go on iron and how much?
Does anyone here have more a problem with blood than actual stool?
I feel it coming and run to the bathroom, but all that comes out is bright red blood. No fecal matter in it at all. Matter of fact I rarely make it on time and lose much blood in my underware.
I am on asacol and he upped my dose to 3, 3 times a day, but no difference.
I do NOT have cramping, no diahrrea, but do have to stay near a bathroom after eating.
But since I had my gallbladder removed 7 years ago, they warned me this may happen, so not sure which is the cause, ..colitis or no gallbladder.
My stool is usually always formed, and when I read here, I am wondering if I even have colitis.
I quit taking asacol 10 days ago, and have not seen one change in my symptoms.
I don't have another appointment until April.
Does any of this sound like anyone elses colitis?
Thanks so much
