TB infection: Please discuss treatment options if she has TB. A bone imaging study and cultures with sensitivities will help to guide the therapy. Multiple studies may be obtained to document that there is no resistance to treatment. An infectious disease specialist should be consulted.

More likely minor pb: If constipated, the rocks you pass likely caused a fissure or scratch in the anal passage which leaks bright red blood onto the stool or puddles in the stool ready to pass. Dark red or purplish stool is more likely to represent polyps or other issues higher in the colon.See your doctor & have this assessed.
