Prednisone & Blood Tinged Mucus or Tissue

Has anyone ever experienced what looks like blood drops in mucus or what might be pieces of tissue? I've been on Prednisone since April - trying a taper just beginning this week. I have noticed mucus a couple of times during the last 2 weeks - prior to the taper but today there is bright red blood drops in the mucus or tissue. I have had pain in the lower left quadrant on/off in the last 1-2 week - also prior to the taper.

My Crohn's and other issues have all originated from the small intestine and up not in my Colon?

I'm a little scared, not sure what this could be.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I would have thought that even with Prednisone, I should not have any blood or inflammation?

Do you think I'm wrong?

I think this warrants a call to the GI. Anytime you see blood in your stool, that is a bit of a heads up that your disease is unhappy. Mucous itself is pretty much harmless, and even IBDer's in remission can have mucous in their stool. But since you are on a Pred taper, you should have a chat with your doc about these symptoms.
