Please go to the ER: It sounds as if he is bleeding after his colonoscopy. Please go to the emergency room immediately to have him evaluated.

Still Post OP period: Speak the doctor(s) surgeon will explain the reason , may need transfusion , what is the cause of delirium ( is a concern ) no one from out side can advise the post operative management , with out examination or with out knowing all the facts.
