What does blood in a stoma bag indicate?

My husband is bleeding from his stoma. Has an end colostomy bag. Noticed there was blood in the bag. When he removed it to empty it, stool was bloody. Removed gasket that is attached to his belly. Doing so was very painful. More blood. What should we do?

Hello,
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic.
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
It could be due to something called prolapse of colostomy stoma.
Immediate correction is needed.
Consult a general surgeon and get evaluated.
