I found out later that is was because of Ulcerative Colitis. This had been my first flare-up and I never had any bloody poo. I'd been suffering for about 6 months with worsening diarrhea and pain, but my no insurance Dr sucked. Well, on one of my follow-ups with my surgeon I asked for pictures, and here they are. I now have what's called a j-pouch, my semi-colon, which allows me to be relatively normal. Normal for someone with intestines that work like a newborns, anyway. It was nine months between my first and last surgery. I almost bled to death right after the second, so they had go digging in my belly again right after. In total I was put under 4 times. There's tons more to story, so ask away.
