Thank you for asking!
Colon malignancies are very common reason for per rectal bleeding. Now in your case , that malignancies and stoma reversal procedures are very invasive and the reason for this per rectal bleeding episode could be any thing along with odds for malignancy recurrence. It needs a colonoscopic evaluation before saying for sure what it is. COuld be some laceration of some bleeder or could be anything from haemorrhoidal or malignancy. Needs work up.Get your gastroenterologist for this.
Take care
