Hi all,
Recently I have been having a bit of blood in the stool however it is bright red not black.  My resection anastamosis is on my left side to the point where my surgeon had told me i dont even have enough colon for a colonoscopy anymore just a sig...does this mean the red blood can be from the ilium ( they only removed part of my ilium) or would that small area of bowel still allot it to being black when it came out?

You could have internal hemmoroids causing the bright red blood. But if you are concerned, I would contact your doctor and discuss. Good luck!
