      Hi, I just saw your post from 8-19-14 about bleeding stoma. My dad has the same issue and is anemic. Has had so many transfusions that he can't get anymore due to antibodies.  He looses a whole colostomy bag of blood sometimes before he can get it stopped. Did you get any information? we need help! Hope things worked out for your father. Thanks, Deidra

              Hi, My dad is loosing lots of blood from the outside of the stoma. He has been in the hospital for 8 days now getting blood transfusions 4 units so far, and is suffering the effects of fluid around the lungs because of that. Please someone help us, he can't live like this. We don't know what to do.
