    Yes when I have a flare up I bleed. Also poo is very wispy and mucusy ( gross I know)  Are you on antibiotics? Keep to a fibre free diet during flare up and introduce normal diet gradually as you feel better. Paracetamol for the pain and placing a hot water bottle on painful area helps. Hope you feel better soon.

    Best wishes Angie

    Hi Elaine. Yes, I have had bleeding from time to time. Its bright red. A year or two ago I had to go over the hospital as I had black stools for three days. It comes out black when you have been bleeding internally, Bleeding from your back passage is quite common with diverticulitis. It worries me, but what can we do about it?

      Yes Susan I always freak out too when I see blood. I'm on holiday in Florida from next week for 3 weeks and had a bad flare up when I was there last. Hopefully the Dr will give me some antibiotics to take with me just in case. Like you say what can we do about it.

    Yes i also get heavy bleeding from time to time.

    The last time about 6 months ago i ended up in hospital for 3 days to have fluid & blood transfusions.

    my doctor told me I had lost 2 pints of blood.

    I get no other problems apart from the heavy bleeding.

    I now have some Tranexamic Acid 500 mg tablets that my doctor says will help reduce the bleeding next time i get it.

    Take care.

      Hi Barry

      Thank you for the info

      It's a harrowing experience isn't it

      You have no idea when to contact the doctor do you!!

      I get pain before a bleed so I kinda know it's happening

      Kindest regards
