embarressed-blood post operation
in october I had an operation to remove my endometriosis. After the op I have been have severe abdominal cramps before I need to go to the toilet. My faeces have been very mucousy. yesterday when I went to the loo, my faeces was surrounded by lots of blood. when I wiped myself there was blood as well, just a little. I am confused by all of this. Is it normal after an op? My cramps are terrible.

Lee, it is definitely not normal after an operation, but it doesn’t have to be due to the operation – it might just be due to something else like haemorrhoids. The problem is that it might be due to the operation or endometriosis of the bowel and that is why the best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
