Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually if your stools consist of greater than 50% blood that means that you are losing a large amount of blood and this could indicate another flare up of the crohns that you have or even a superimposed bacterial infection in the intestines. Regardless of the cause, the presence of severe blood in the stools does warrant stool analysis, stool cultures and also possibly a repeat colonoscopy if the blood does not respond to steroid therapy or even antibiotics.

So i would definitely advise that you DO get this evaluated by visiting the hospital again.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
