When my 3 year old had her colectomy surgery done, the surgeon told us that some rectal discharge is normal. But lately she's had several (4 or 5 in as many days) loose stools from her rectum with blood that she has no control over and says do not hurt her. Is this normal? How much discharge (although to me it's not discharge but actual stools) is ok? My daughter is having j-pouch surgery in March. We're calling the dr. on Monday to check, I was just curious if any of you have dealt with this. Thanks in advance!
