So Im still dealing with this flare it seems, about 8 months now, last 5 or so with the symptom being blood.
Due to strange genital discomfort (male) when using rectal enemas and foam I have been on 1g Salofalk suppositories morning and night for about 2 months.
During this time, especially over the last month and half I haven’t seen much blood but I honestly think its due to the suppositories making it easier to pass stool by making it softer, in fact some days its way too loose and even diarrhea.
Anytime I have to push in the slightest, blood drips. I haven’t had too for a few weeks but last few days I started having some mucus with larger bms, only going once or twice a day.
Today it happened, first bm was at 6pm, slight pushing and the blood starts dripping. Makes me feel like all this time its been there and not got any better just disguised.
My calprotectin 4 months ago was 400, last month it was 80 but now Im seeing the blood again and feel like Im back to square one.
My GI finds it strange that its only when pushing as this would usually mean a hemmie, yet when she looked a few months ago, no hemmie.
I really don’t get it.. wouldn’t there be blood usually anyway even without a push? How come I don’t see it?
