J-Pouch blood loss

Has anyone experienced regular short term hemorrhage? I have had three internal bleeds, 8 to 9 weeks apart. They last for two or three days. At least a pint of blood each time.

    Thank you Pam and Brooke for replying. I have been to see my Dr and also a specialist. I am awaiting a date for investigative work. Thankfully, I am due to have the first of two iron infusions Wednesday this week.
    Kind regards

    Hi @RobinK,

    As a fellow j-poucher I would strongly advise you to track your symptoms and speak to your GI immediately. Blood at any point in disease is not normal or routine. Keep us posted!

    I’m so sorry to hear this, RobinK. I hope some community members can chime in with some of their own experiences. If you haven’t done so already, It is always best to speak with your doctor about your symptoms or side effects. I hope you find some answers and relief soon. Best, Pam (team member)
