Dear All, I've been bleeding when I pass stool. The stool is hard in the begining and then I see blood, in fact the blood drops out separately too and not just coats the stool. But later stools don't have blood on them. This happened a month ago and the GI prescribed Canasa. But near the end of the prescription, a couple of days ago the blood returned. I don't have urgencies like before - 1-2 BMs a day. But whenever I see the blood, my heart just sinks. Any words of advice/comfort? What could be going on? Could it be a tear - although I don't feel much during BMs but I occasionally feel sharp pains in my left side that last for a coupld of seconds.

How often are you using Rowasa? It sounds like you have some left-sided inflammation (pain) & maybe an internal hemmie, too (blood dripping out) after bm. Probably if you're not using Rowasa nightly already, you should start doing that & give it a couple weeks at least to see if that reduces the problems. / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC ...

Bleeding is my most persistant symptom.  Even when in a minor flare, I bleed...I bleed with and without passing stool when flaring...I sometimes bleed enough that it drips as you worst problem is clearing up symptoms on the rectum area where I have LOTS of ulcers that bleed...I don't know if you have a tear but do know that the bleeding can be from UC alone, especially if you have problems clearing up the ulcers in the rectum like I do...
