BCIR and a Little Bleeding

BCIR and a Little Bleeding

For myself, a little bleeding once in a great while is pretty normal when intubating.  I mean it’s not that often, but when it happens I know why, as it’s usually because I didn’t lube the tube up enough or I didn’t slowly twist the tube while inserting.  I was probably in a rush.  When it happens, it’s usually just a little blood that stops right away.  If you’re getting a lot of blood or if that happens often, make sure to ask the doc about it.

Understand that there are many capillaries right at the stoma and it doesn’t take much to rupture a few when jabbing a plastic tube at it.  Lube that tube up a bit more and don’t rush!

About Jay

Jay is the author of the the BCIR Advocate blog and the book, "Colitis Be Gone." In 1998, I decided to have the BCIR (Barnett Continent Intestinal Reservoir) surgery due to severe colitis. My day job is working in media and marketing, so I felt I had the tools to bring some exposure to BCIR and how it might help others. I actually get many emails about the BCIR, so I felt the blog could work as a better message board. Please note, I am not a doctor and have no medical background. Anything you read on this blog is based on my own experiences living with the BCIR. I may give advice based on my own experiences, but please consult your doctor before acting on anything you read on this site.
