Gel like mucus and continuing gas......

Like others, quite embarrased but definitely need some help. For the past 2 months I have had a gel like mucus every time I have a bowel movement. I have also noticed having a lot of gas and sometimes feel the pressure to have a bm but when I go it's just gas and the mucus. Any ideas of what this could be? I am a diabetic and am always concerned with health problems. Thanks for your help

Re: Gel like mucus and continuing gas......

Well you are not alone, I have the same problem. So if you find out what it is and what to do about it then please post! I assume you haven't been to see a dr either. I assume that the first thing they will do is a colonoscopy (i think?) to see if theres anything going on up there, sounds horrible though!
