Just wondering if anyone has experienced this after gallbladder surgery. I had my gallbladder out about 4 weeks ago and I've been pretty nauseated since. I don't experience normal BMs and eating is a guessing game at times (I figure my body is just trying to adapt). A couple days ago I got pretty sick from eating a plate of spaghetti and about 6 or 7 hours after eating, I had a bad case of diarrhea. I had blood and mucous on the toilet paper that was red, not too bright red, but red. To me it looked like the blood was separating in the mucous. I talked to a friend of mine who told me it's probably from the surgery and the doctor said he'd see me again in a week and half. If there's more blood, then he'll order a colonoscopy. Should I be concerned about this? Is it blood passing after the surgery...has this happened to anyone? I haven't had another episode since that day, but it's only been 3 days...does blood in the stool usually occur more frequently? Thanks!
