I'd suggest it could be the rectal inflammation that your c-scope report stated, I would think that if it got worse, you could ask about
In reality....I went through so many ups and downs the first 2 years, especially when the inflammation started healing from up to down. I didn't know HOW to deal with just the rectal symptoms, and yes the bleeding always freaked me out when I had least expected it.
I also had LOTS of emotional stress thorughout those years...I'll add anxiety attacks to the mix.
Therapy helped me get a grip......not that it changed my symptoms, it allowed me to not focus on just the obvious where there was so much more going on in my life. (many lightbulb moments)
Hang tough....as usual.

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