Hi! Welcome! I have about 7 inches of rectum left after my surgery and it bleeds as well. I pass blood daily and sometimes there are clots in it. The surgeries can be very trying emotionally and physically and I think you've come to the right place! (also j-pouch.org)
I'm learning as I go along that blood clots are a big concern after surgery, sorry he has to deal with that too! What disease does he have / is he getting a j pouch?
