    Hi 

    ring your GP and say your symptom and get an emergency appointment. My hubby had this and it was caused by constant diahreah as he has ibs . But u need to get it checked. If it's red blood u r bleeding in your rectum area (piles) or ulceration if it's like black coffee grounds it's from higher up your digestive track stomach ulcer etc ... It is probably not to do with your op but needs checking as its a symptom of bowel cancer. Although it can be lots of other easily treatable things as well . Put your mind at ease and pop to the GP or a and e . A simple examination can tell them a lot .. But don't panic ... Sally

    Definitely contact your doctor and be honest with them.

    This is not necessarily something awful but I think you need to know.

    Try not to worry and let me know how you get on

    Hi kevin1133, 

    the same thing happened to me, I was coming off strong meds, and flushing crappy anesthesia out of my system, so the loose stools began. I called the surgeon, and he said to go to ER ONLY if it was dark blood, black purple kind. This began exactly around the 3-4 week mark. Keep track of the color, just let your surgeon know what's going on, apparently it's normal as the loose stools beginsad keep us posted. Sending you healing wishes. Xoxo
