Get it looked at by : Anytime you have a significant change you should get your surgeon to check it out. Only they know for sure what is there. Often it is fluid that has old blood in it. It can look like a lot of bleeding. But get it checked.

Me either: It doesn't make sense to me, either. This needs to be looked into anew. A colonoscopy seems in order.
