Are you on the enemas nightly?
I don't think it's the salad or the icecream that caused the bleeding...I'd say that you're still in a fragile state and that the increase in bms/ diarrhea has just shown that.
The other possiblity is that you have some inflammation a bit higher than where the enemas treat.
You should also be on oral 5ASA meds...or are you?
Please consider taking probiotics if you aren't already....I do agree that salads in some restaurants aren't cleaned properly or have additives and can definitely upset the flora balance in our guts.
hope you get back to feeling better soon.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
