Dr Uzair :

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Dr Uzair :

No, this is not dangerous.

Dr Uzair :

Even though the loop has been closed proximally, the distal segment that is attached and patent with the anal canal has glands that have secretions.

Dr Uzair :

These secretions collect and once they form a large enough bolus they pass out as stool.

Dr Uzair :

This does not happen often and is nothing to worry about.
