The article relates the author's experiences of diagnosing and treating patients who endured postpolypectomy bleeding (PPB) following endoscopic surgery. The author admitted that in everyday endoscopy practice, PBB is normal, thus, making the diagnosis more difficult. However, based on experience, he reminds his patients that a 0.5- 1% risk of bleeding within 30 days after endoscopy is a sufficient symptom for patients to repeat endoscopy, hospitalization, blood transfusion, or surgery.
