I've been in a flare for over 1.5 years. Started Remicade in March and got some response but not as much as I should have and Doc upped the dosage to 10 mg/8 weeks. Had my first double dose on 8/16 and have seen steady improvement since then. The past week nearly normal, formed stools, very little blood, 3-4x/day (my "normal" is 2-3x). This AM the first BM was ok, no issues. 2nd one was formed but there was a bit of blood in the stool and a big bright red blood clot on the paper. I just went again and stool was still mostly formed, but a lot of bright red blood on the paper and in the toilet. I don't have any urgency or pain.
Is this normal to have blood like this when healing? I don't remember anything like this happening before when coming out of a flare. I've had ups and downs, but not an increase in blood like this.
