Question Blood in stool 6 months after colon cancer surgery

Hi. I am a British woman and I am living in Japan with my Japanese husband who is 57 years of age. He was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer 6 months ago and the surgeon told us that the operation was a success. His place of work offers yearly medical checkups for the staff, and he had a checkup a week ago. To our dismay, the doctor found blood in his stool. We went back to the surgeon who performed the operation and aked if this was normal 6 months after surgery. His replied that it wasn't and now my husband has to have another colonoscopy. I am afraid it may have returned and the language barrier/lack of knowledge in Japanese isn't helping my fear. I have looked online for the type of treatment he is receiving and the names of the medication. The translation for the medication isn't anywhere to be found, so I can't relate what it is here. Is it normal to have blood in the stool so soon after surgery?
