Hello,

Haemorrhoids itself causes blood in the stool sample. candida albicans infection is very rare due to seen in immunosuppressed patients.

So colonoscopy induced trauma also may cause this problem. Eat high fibre diet, avoid straining during defecation.

Drink plenty of water and get stool microscopy and culture sensitivity. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
