Had constipation after surgery. Took medicines. Having little blood in stools. Reason?

I had surgery about 2 months ago about a month ago I started drinking smooth move ever few days because I was constipated. I then found myself taxing 1 senna tab every day for about a week. All in all I would say this lasted 3 weeks. 2 weeks ago I realized I had began taking them everyday to we re I stopped. I haven t had many symptoms of getting off of it but yesterday there was a little blood on my stool and today it s a darker color. I am going to make an appt with my doctor but taking the pills for such a short time did I do any real harm

It doesn't seem to be harm caused by pills.There can many causes of such rectal bleed in patients of constipation.Common causes are fissure or piles.

Visit to doctor is always warranted in such cases as there are other causes which surely need to be ruled out.
