Blood in Colostomy Bag
Is it normal for there to be bleeding into the colostomy bag?  I have a close friend who has been to the ER three times within four weeks because of bleeding.  The doctors cannot say why it happens. What do you suggest we do to find out the reason?  Thank you.

hi there if there is alot of blood i would say on its not normal .... is your bag cut to fit around your stoma if not you can sometimes get abit of blood from around your stoma which then finds its way in to your bag and ive known my stoma to bleed a little if im a bit rough when i clean it .......  have you eaten any foods ie tomatoes of peppers even chillies sometimes the undigested skins can look like blood at a quick glance ... hope ur sorted soon and kep on at the docs if your not happy good luck.
