Bloody mucus in stool 3 months post Bariatric surgery

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a small amount of bright red mucus that occurred after a very loose stool. I'm 3 months post op gastric bypass. Is it something I need to call the dr office about? Thanks

Dear Pilotswife,

Bloody mucus in the stool is an important problem, and you should discuss it with your physician.  There are many causes of bloody mucus some of which include colitis, infection,  malignancy, and benign polyps. It is unlikely to be related to your gastric bypass. You may need a colonoscopy for diagnosis.
