Hi Connie, Welcome to HCM.
Blood in stool
can be due to various reasons such as any injury
in the intestinal tract. It can also be due to injury in the rectum/anal region. With regards to diet, you need to avoid foods that are too fibrous which will irritate the digetive tract. Consume foods in the form of porridges, soups, juices, milk shakes, semi solid foods etc. Remember to avoid any spicy foods. Drink luke warm water throughout the day to avoid dehydration
. Also consume glucose
water in case you feel fainty. Intake fruits in the form of custards, milk shakes or puddings. You should not be putting strain on the digestive system. Also, the situation can also be due to piles, fissure ot even other critical conditions such as intestinal cancer. So along with diet, consult a doctor to help yourself immediately.
