I had four colon polyps removed, one was 15mm and causing bleeding in stool. I was told I didnt has ibs/chrons/colitis. What caused these polyps then?

Viral field changes: With 4 polyps one needs to know if there is a familial history of polyposis. In addition are the polyps adenomatous or inflammatory. Rare for an adenomatous polyp of 1.5 mm to be symptomatic. If not congenital and appearing adenomatous, the mechanism appears to be polyoma virus transfecting mucosal epithelium and then as various lesions appear if a malignancy arises it suppresses the others.

What could cause enlarged lymph nodes near colon seen in CT scan? colonscopy & biopsy clear. Was having rectal bleeding for 1 month. GI said infection

Lymph node: enlargement is caused by infection or inflammation in the vast majority of cases. RARELY are they caused by cancer or lymphoma. If your GI says infection, I would be comfortable with it.

Can almonds irritate the colon bleeding?

Hmmm.: For many years nuts were said to trigger diverticulitits and risk of bleeds; current evidence is ambiguous. I tell patients that if nuts bother them (pain...) avoid them but if not, eat in moderation.

Rectal bleeding that's not from the colon - any possibilities?

Hemorroids : That are closer to the anal opening would be one. Or small intestine, before it enters the colon, called the ileum. Meckel's diverticulum, a congenital abnormality in the ileum comes to mind. Or it could be intermittent bleeding from colon. Good luck.

Had 3rd remicade (infliximab) infusion last friday for left-sided uc. Colon is still bleeding. When would I know if remicade (infliximab) is working or not?

Had 3rd remicade (infliximab) infusion last friday for left-sided uc. Colon is still  bleeding. When would I know if remicade (infliximab) is working or not?

See below.: You have essentially received the loading doses of remicade (infliximab). It may take 2 to 3 more infusions to truly settle down the uc and then hopefully bleeding will be decreased and hopefully stopped. Dosage may need to be altered to obtain better results and that will be based on your response and tolerability to the medication.

Is it possible to have bleeding in your colon without black or tarry stools?

Is it possible to have bleeding in your colon without black or tarry stools?

Yes: Tarry stools (melena) is usually due to a higher gi tract source of bleeding (I.e. stomach or small bowel). As the source of bleeding gets closer to the anus, it is usually red as there is less digestion by bacteria (which is why it turns black)
