A pink tinged color is normal, but it shouldn't be red. Right after I had surgery, I had the urge to empty the stump about 4 x a day, but now I empty very infrequently.
If you feel like it's really bothering you, or if it's really bloody, then you should go see the Dr., because you can still get crohns dz in your rectum. :(
