I've been experiencing bright red blood in my stool and after I passed gas. I'm 18 days post op and have lots of watery diarrhea still, so probably resulting from the irritation in the rectum. I'm going to give my doc a call on Monday (unless it worsens before then) but wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this.

Thanks all...

bright red is less worrisome than dark red. It usually indicates a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure...both of which are more of a nuisance than anything dangerous. They're often caused by straining to defecate. But I'd let your clinic or PCP know regardless, just in case. If nothing else, for peace of mind.

P.S. I don't remember if I had this after surgery, but I've had it in the past. It was from hemorrhoids.

I didn't have this after surgery, but I did have it when I would have to strain to poop. Usually when I would be constipated. For me, it was a tear from straining too hard too often. My doc also said as long as it's bright red, it's not a major concern. If it's dark red or even black, that's a serious problem.

I also only experienced this after being constipated with a hemorrhoid. When it was painful I would use "TUCKS" brand wipes. Hope you feel better soon!
