Diarrhea, blood cells. Having reversal of ileostomy. Had cancer of a polyp in rectum. Suggest?

I am 9 days post op having had reversal of my ileostomy. I had a cancer of a polyp next to the top of the rectum . A small piece of the top of the rectum was removed with about 6 inches of colon due to the fact it had benign polyps and the surgeon did not want to leave this piece of colon. I am well in myself but experience very loose motions about 2/3 times a day plus blood +++. I am really frightened that the scaring is breaking down in the rectal area with the bowel movements. I sometimes wish I had not had this reversal op as I have no councellor or advice on what to do. I am 67 yrs.

The information supplied by you is not adequate, for better understanding of the condition details of the polyp its location and colonoscopic finding to be mentioned, also the surgery detail is necessary. Anyway blood per stool may be due to simple bacillary desentry, surgical complication is unlikely. Consult your surgeon.
