yellowish stool is often indicative of fat malabsorption - although maybe not always, so it's probably good to ask

bright red blood is usually hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, neither of which are particularly major, so you may be OK there as well - but again, it's good to get it checked (and they'll probably have you treat it regardless, so it's good you're going). Really dark blood can be more worrisome because that means it's coming from much further up the G/I tract.

I hope everything is okay i had long limb rny but my doc told me not to be worried if i had some bloood in my stool when i went home from hospital. I have not had any. Let us know how you are doing. Yellow stool can be a liver issue a food intolerance a gallbladder thing etc catwoman is correct about bright red blood

I had bright red stool a few times early on, and it was my hemorrhoids from being on Eliquis, the blood thinner.
Usually bright red stool is from hemmorhoids, but just to be safe I'd mention it to your dr.
