yes, a work up is warranted when you find blood in the stools. I had some blood in mine four years ago, and I too have alot of mucous when I go, and alot of relatives that have crohns icluding my sister and my 23 year old son was diagnosed 2 years ago. I was diagnosed with IBS, I was scared to death with the crohns running in my family. I think I was very lucky.

As far as the extensive adhesions I have all over the intestines and the fact that the adhesions have pulled my large colon down into the pelvis, I am afraid as they told me in sept last year after surgery, that it was smothring the small bowel, I AM scared. I will have surgery as soon as it is neede, trying to wait for the new abarriers!

I have alot of trust and faith in the gyn I see, and I will go for his opiion, I KNOw he would not do anything to hurt the situation further. A general surgeon would definitely wrap my entire bowel with abarrier, and they did say it worked for the one other patient he had. So time will tell.

Love to all, toni
