Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Thanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.
I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information

Matt was there any pain with those bowel movements?

No

Usually when this happens its from internal hemorrhoids and nothing worrisome

Colon polyps generally don't produce bright red blood in the stool and neither does colon cancer

So I very much doubt your polyps have returned

That said, any time this happens it warrants letting ones doctor know about it

If I were your doctor I would visually and manually check for hemorrhoids and consider a sigmoidoscopy to look for potential polyps

Please let me know if you need any more information

in your option I know you can't be sure but you don't think it's cancer

I really doubt it's cancer especially since you had a colonoscopy a year ago

Is that helpful?
