Occasionally: Depending if you had hemorrhoids or biopsies, you may experience a little bleeding for a day or two. If polyps are removed, the bleeding can be heavier and longer.

Probably hemorrhoids: Since colonoscopy was normal you may have internal hemorrhoids or anal fissure bleeding. See the GI specialist again

Needs to go back: Have his doc take another look at him. Try to avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, motrin, aleve, (naproxen) ibuprofen. Good luck.
