Rectal bleeding after treatment

Postby Rstarrg » Mon Mar 13, 2017 2:58 pm

Has anyone had any rectal bleeding following completion of treatment. I just had a scan and was told all was clear but am having some rectal bleeding. I had a partial scope a few weeks ago and surgeon said where they did the opening at reversal surgery was too small and blood vessels were disturbed from stool irritation. He said he fixed it by enlarging the area. But here i am with bleeding today. Usually after rough bm. Thoughts?
