Need some advice please to put my mind at rest. Had a Colonoscopy procedure performed on me on 21-12-17. They removed 6 polyps, one was enlarged. They also tattooed an area for future check ups. I have been told I will be require a Colonoscopy every 12 months. I am a 63 year old male with previous stomach problems. Burst duodenal ulcer, diverticular desease, section of my bowel removed, which they performed a temporary colostomy operation. Bowel cancer does run in my family. To cut to the chase I had a heavy bleed from my back passage 3 weeks after the Colonoscopy procedure. I just made it to the toilet thinking I had the runs. When wiping myself I saw blood on the paper. On looking into the bowel I saw quite a large amount of dark and bright red blood. I have had no problems other than this since the procedure. Is this normal??
