Passed blood clot with colostomy bag?

My father had part of his colon removed due to a large cancerous tumor approx 1 month ago. A colostomy bag was inserted and today he felt like he had a lot of gas and needed to have a bowel movement. He ended up passing a large blood clot from his rectum. Has anyone had this happen to them? If so, what and where is this coming from? Could it be scar tissue? My father refuses to call the Dr. and swears they won't "open" him up again.

If you have any suggestions it will be appreciated!!

Re: Passed blood clot with colostomy bag?

Yes, it could be tissue that is a result of the sewing up of that end of the colon. You don't say where in the colon the colostomy is. The further away from the rectum the more common it will be for mucous to continue to be expelled.

However!!!!!!!!!! The doctor should be consulted and asked about this AND if your father develops new pain, tenderness in the abdomen, a fever, or passes more blood he should get to the doctor with haste. I understand his aversion to being opened up again but if the alternative is worse then ,,,,,,,,,
