Question for Harry...Re: Diarrhea and Diviticular

Harry............you said that diviticular can bleed with diarrhea.........why is that? You would think that with stool getting out, they would be okay. How does diarrhea irritate them? Thanks for your expertise............Lori

Re: Question for Harry...Re: Diarrhea and Diviticular

Lori,

Diverticulars are small pouches (from a small green pea to the size of a thimble) that are weakneses in your intestinal wall. They easily get filled with fecal matter and readily get infected, irritated and inflammed -- the entire colon has alot of viens and arteries and when you get diarrhea -- the harsh food particles that pass a diverticular can make them bleed.

It certainly doe not happen every time but it does happen enough--
That is why I said diarrhea can make diverticulars bleed and if your clotting time is longer than normal then it takes a little longer for it to clot and it does not take much blood in a toilet to look like alot of blood-- just a few drops.

God Bless---Harry
