Blood in the Colostomy Bag - Over and Over

My Father has Stage 4 colon cancer and a colostomy on the right side of his belly. He had a large blockage (tumor) removed in January. He has not really recovered. He is very weak, unable to eat, and now seems to be passing large amounts of blood. Everyday there is blood in the bag. Some days it completely fills and drenches his clothes. His oncologist is aware, but says his hemoglobin is ok. This has been happening for 2 weeks. Has anyone ever experienced this? I'm afraid something is very wrong and I'm not sure what to do or where to take him for help.

Re: Blood in the Colostomy Bag - Over and Over

What did you do about it?
My father has the exact same symptoms and we are back from the hospital today. The Oncologist and the Gastro-Enterologist are aware of this problem, but they say its nothing to worry. I would like to know what you have done ?
Did you go to the doctor again?

Regards
Sarath
