In brief: Perhaps
Constipation is common post surgery, especially with the use of narcotic pain medications.
This can lead to excessive mucous production and could cause bleeding hemorrhoids or a tear called an anal fissure. All GI bleeding should be investigated to some degree, however, as rectal bleeding is never normal. You should discuss this with your doctor or surgeon.
