Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
Yes, it is normal especially after so many polyps were removed. If you are on anticoagulant medication then you should see doctor. Otherwise, just have easier diet and lot of fluids. If there will be unstoppable pure blood or you start to feel dizzy then you should see doctor too. Wish you good health. Regards
