I have had some blood a couple times the past few days, I think it may be from the hemiroid.  It's not mucousy like when flaring, just some on the tp and small amt on bm.  It is getting better I think, b/c it hurts less when having a bm but kind of painful today, which is when I saw the blood.
 
any ideas?  TIA!

sounds like a hemi to me. I've had the same problem on and off. I'm not anemic anymore though, and figure as long as the toilet water isn't red I'm probably ok.

What have you tapered the enemas to at this time?
 
I'd assume it's UC related....but you could consider adding anusol to your rectal med regimen...should help both for the time being.
 
Since your bms have changed...if you're not attributing it to food intake, it's still say it's UC.

Hi Q! - I was doing the enema's every two nights and was doing good, semi formed stools and no blood. I can feel the hemi and it hurt to put the enema in b/c it's right there so I have not done that for 4 nights, so that could be the UC but the blood is more watery not thick like when flaring. Can the hemi bleed?

Maybe i'll put the prep h creme on the outside of the enema to get it up there w/out as much pain.

for the hemi I am using the suppositories, wipes and cream

Sounds as though you're covering all the bases....that's the best you can do...and from not using the other for 4 days straight, I'd say it's UC and probably a hemi..

I think prep H can help..or maybe get the doc to prescribe proctocedyl ointment or the suppositories.

Keep us posted.
