Surgical clips and bleeding

Four years ageo, I had a radical prostatectomy.  Since then I have experienced bleeding from my penis - and sometime anus - during a bowel movement.  More recently I was passing large blood clots for 24 hours during urination.  For this I was givin ten days of Keflex and the passing of the clots ceased but I have returned to intermittent bleeding following a bowell movement, expecially when my stool my stool is firm.  A recent xray showed that I have multiple metallic surgical clips in the peripheries of the left and right hemipelvis and in the inferior aspectof the pelvis.  Do you think there might be a connection?

Thank you for your question. I can understand how this may be a concern for you, however, I have some questions to better understand your symptoms:

1: Does this bleeding occur every time you urinate or have a bowel movement.

2. What color is the blood?

3. Have the blood clots in the urine ceased?

Best,

AKT

1. The bleeding from penis during a bowel movement happens 75% of the time.

2. The blood is normally bright red.  During the 24 hour episode much of the was maroon in color.

3. The latest event occurred this morning.

Thanks
