Just had the rubber band ligation yesterday for internal hemorrhoids. Today after a bowel movement i saw blood and a slightly foul smell. Is it normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Most likely

What you are describing is normal.
Small rectal bleeding would be expected after a hemorrhoid procedure. Your doctor or surgeon should give you instructions on what to expect. Call their office ; ask for post procedure instructions ; expectations.
