I have lots of bright red blood following stool in bowel movement. I had hemoroidectomy in 2005. Lately I have noticed frequent bleeding almost every after bowel movement. I also had gall bladder removal in 2009 and experiences mild pain immediately on the right side of my navel when I am not able to release gas. Do I have reason to worry?
Bright red blood means it is close to the anus. It very well could be another hemorrhoid.
Have you had the pain with gas since your surgery? In some cases it can indicate a blocked bile duct.
See your physician for both.
