Hi, I have had a working j pouch since June of this year. The last two weeks I have had intense cramps, major increase in bathroom breaks, pain and now rectal bleeding. Of course headed to the Dr on Thursday. Should I be scared about the bleeding?

I advice not to worry: the first time I had bleeding I was quite scared but not too worried, then it worsened and one night I began to have MASSIVE bleeding (it was 9 months after takedown) and I went with my feet to ER, then hospitalized for some days. Intravenous antibiotics (flagyl and ciproxin) eliminated the bleeding and I am good since then (I still bleed sometimes, but only if I strain, moreover I have a light chronic pouchitis - crp levels are somewhat always a bit higher than normal so I'm taking a course of ciproxin every month), this is not something that isn't allowing me to live a normal life.
