Difficult: Antral erosions can be painful but they usually don't bleed unless bleeding was seen on egd. Was there anything else seen on the egd such as celiac disease signs? Was colonoscopy done at the same time? Did you have stool studies done or ct scan of the abdomen? Any other labwork. Anything been tried as far as medication? Hard to come up with answers without more detail. Sorry.

Probable colon issue: The endoscopic findings of erosions do not explain your lower intestinal problems. You may need a colonoscopy or ct scan to diagnose your condition.
