A member asked:

Had colonoscopy/endoscopy this year both clear except for high lymphocyte count in small intestine-had colon cleanse 2day afterward had bloody mucus ?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Why did you cleanse?: Your database suggests enteritis--an inflammatory condition of the small intestine (like Crohn's disease or infection, among others). Your bloody effluent after cleansing raises concern for ongoing/undertreated inflammation. Please don't cleanse again, but instead start appropriate medication for your condition--call your doctor today.
