Bleeding post op

Hello, my husband had bowel surgery on Monday. All went well and he is eating and drinking pretty well now. He has had his bowels open, so all is working but he has been passing some blood when he goes. How long before this settles down?


Hello @Lupin, I had that, and all was well. You should, however, contact your team because they know history etc.:x::x:


Thanks Clancy. It seems to be better today. It is just a bit unnerving!

Hi @Lupin
Just to support what @Clancy said, it’s not unusual to pass some blood after an op like that, but it’s worth a quick call to the team - reassures you both and informs them of how he’s doing
Big hugs
