Had severe diverticulitis previously. Had partial colon removed. Passing bubble during bowels. What could it be?

Have a question for you. A year in a half ago I had severe diverticulitis I had a portion of my colon removed after surgery everything went well went home after a few days then I noticed when I had a bowl movement there was a bubble that would come out I asked my surgeon about this and he said come in in a few weeks if it don t go away this is common after this kind of surgery, a few weeks later I went back to see him he did a rectal exam and said he does not see anything increase my fiber intake well months went buy and it is still there so I went to another doctor for his opinion he did a exam and said is probably a hemmoriod you have them on both sides of the inner rectum so he put bands on both of them and said they should fall off in a few days, Well it s been 8 months later and the bubble tissue still comes out when I have a bowl movement It does go back in when I m finished but no doctor seems to fiqure out what it could be. Any input on my situation?

Thanks for writing in
Clinically from the information you have provided it seems to be a hemorrhoid

But now that you have had band application I doubt it

What is the size of the bubble ?
What is the status after passing stool ? Does it go back in the anal canal or you have to need to push it back?

Does it bleed ?
Have you ever had a look at it in the mirror so as to describe its appearance?

Do get back with these details and I will try to help you out .....
