Remember this is veinous blood and is going to be dark and not bright red. There is an old expression where the penis is called the "purple headed warrior". I think it is absolutely nothing to worry about
. It may be darker blood than before surgery, but no, there is no strangulation going on. If it isn't painful, don't worry about
it. Also, the stool is obviously stimulating a nerve as it passes by. Take it and be happy that there is some action going on at all!
