This is a strange question but what color is your stool normally? Im concerned bc most times it seems like there’s blood in my stool. It’s not completely obvious like bright red or anything...my stool is just kinda orangey/reddish color most of the time. I’m not eating anything with red dye. I’m 3 weeks post op from takedown. I seem to be doing ok, not perfect by any means. Stool amounts have been ok-about 8-10 times a day. I do happen to have a fissure. It doesn’t really cause me much pain...my surgeon just saw it when she was examining me. Does anyone else have stool that seems reddish in color but not blood?
