Hi, thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear about what's been going on with your husband recently. Given how close we are to the operation and the recent bleed, it's not unexpected for small amounts of blood to be expelled but it should remain small amounts. This is while the area continues to heal. It should settle to nothing within a few more weeks but of course if it increases he should be seen sooner.
