Reply to "bleeding"

Thanks, Janet. I was so nervous I called and spoke to Nurse Susan Kay and she reassured me that because that area is so vascular, a small cut will make for a good amount of blood. She recommended irrigating with ice water so that the cold would constrict the vessels and to use lots of lube. It is much better now, almost completely gone from what I can tell. 

It is like PTSD, when I see a lot of blood in the toilet, I instantly flash back to my UC days..... It makes me realize that although I am living a happy, normal life, I am one pouch malfunction away from a nightmare at all times....super scary....
