Side effects of iron supplements can include:
So, these are common side effects that have nothing to do with cancer.

The premise is incorrect. The internal anal sphincter is in a state of chronic contraction and is not under voluntary control. When defecation occurs the sphincter relaxes allowing the passage of the rectal contents. Even when there is a colostomy there is still mucus produced which needs to be expelled on a regular basis. There is no disuse occurring.
While I consider this hypothesis unlikely, but possible, there are things that could be done to investigate this idea directly (most likely at consuming a significant amount of personal funds if you are willing to find anyone to do them).
First, yes bloating or excessive intestinal gas disorders/diseases exists. While not a great journal, and one that uses ...
Hello and welcome to SE Medical Sciences.

Anal Stenosis, I think, is commonly seen in newborns or infants.
This needs treatment by itself.
A adult person having "Anal Stenosis", if he/she is passing stools normally, then he can, as well go for Colonoscopy.
Colo-Rectal surgeons do surgeries, like complications Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis or Megacolon, resection of Colon cancer etc.
If you are not pleased with what the doctor said or you do not trust him, obtain your medical documentation about your case and ask for the second opinion.
Another doctor, in order to be able to give you a proper advice, will need to know the exact type and size of the polyp, was it the only polyp, the first polyp, etc.
