Hi Teddy,
Thanks for posting your query.
There is least chances of getting bleeding due to hernial surgery of stomach.
Suppose if bleeding is occurring from upper gastro-intesinal tract then blood will also come in vomit.
You should consult with physician/ surgeon and should go for localized anal examination with per rectum examination.
If this examination is normal then you should also go for following test: complete blood count, bleeding time, clotting time, prothrombin time, renal function test and colonoscopy.
You should also go for endoscopy for satisfaction.
If your hemoglobin is below 8 gm% then you should also go for blood transfusion.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hi, tednomsa,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be having bleeding piles.
This might not be having connection with hernia, you got operated upon.
Consult surgeon and get examined.
If there is 3rd or 4th degree piles you have to go for surgery.
Avoid constipation and take plenty of water.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Ok and bye.
