Is it possible for stool to be present in the colon even when you have a colostomy?

Posted by Caroline R. Facebook

I had a colostomy in Oct. 2006. I have been experiencing bleeding from the rectum. A colonoscopy showed that there was stool present which the doc said must have been there from before the surgery! Is that even possible? Anyway, at this point, I have to wait until Oct. to have the procedure re-done & I'm still bleeding!
