Hi Spluxa,

It sounds like your bm hit somewhere on your hemorroid and it started bleeding out some. Usually, the blood after the bm, in my experience and says my Doc, is from a hemorroid. Even if you don't see one, you can have one. I hope this helps.

Thank you, Whatsaflaredown! I was thinking of it, I just need to know that it's true...

Usually if you are having no Uc symptoms and feel overall well, bright red blood is usually indicative of a hemmeroid. Darker the blood, the higher up in the GI tract it is. So bright red blod = rectal inflammation (Uc symptoms) or hemmeroids, darker red = inflammation higher in the colon and black blood = old blood from high in the colon.

Do you have a fissure? I open mine with more aggressive wiping. It sometimes causes blood to drip in the toilet..and when I wipe it's only blood..definitely NOT flare for me.

You can check by squatting over a mirror and see if there's a cut in the anal folds..

If it is...use hydrocortisone cream, zinc oxide, anusol or proctosedyl ointment on the area to heal it.

The Canasa would help...but the hydrocortisone or Anusol hcl will help.

Are you still on the cortifoam enemas nightly?

I often get blood from hemorrhoids when I'm coming out of a flare due to all the times I went to the bathroom during my flare. The bleeding is different.

With hemorrhoids, I usually don't have any blood with the first poo. Then I feel a slight pain right at the as* h*le (sorry for being so vivid). And then I see a bit of blood on the poo. Sometimes in streaks.

With UC, I'll have blood when I go to the bathroom. I'll have have cramping if I've been flaring. I could have pain right at the as* h*le if I've had the flare for awhile. That's due to the hemorrhoids. If I'm just getting the flare, I won't have any cramping or pain right at the as* h*le.

No, I don't use Cortifoam, I used it for 2 weekes, and stoped when I was good. I keep this magic foam for the bad days, don't want to get used to it, so it will work for longer! :-)

maybe that's part of the problem....use it nightly for a week and if you improve, taper it to a maintenance level.
 
You have inflammation, either UC-wise or hemmie-wise...you do need to keep it in check.  I also believe that hammies or fissures can encoursge a flare somehow, possibly because the area itself is inflamed and that could trigger the immune response.  UC isn't that specific in its reactions.
 
How about using the 5ASA enemas?  is there a reason you can't take them?
