Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The bleeding from the anus commonly occurs due to either anal fissure or hemorrhoids (piles). Both these conditions usually result from chronic constipation. In anal fissure, thereâs a rupture of the mucosal lining of the anus and this usually causes a lot of pain while passing stools. In piles, thereâs usually painless bleeding. Another important cause is some growth within the colon/rectum.
These conditions can be looked for only after a local examination and investigations. This bleeding shouldnât have anything to do with appendicitis as chances of a complication causing these problems are more during the initial period after the surgery. Please do consult a surgeon and get yourself examined. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
It may just be hemorrhoids,but get a colonoscopy just to be safe, rectal bleeding can be a sign of colon cancer, so you want to find it ASAP. Early detection and treatment makes all the difference in survival rates.
