mucus type stools

I was taking prednisone for about a week, then when I stopped, I started having water with mucus type stools. (several, maybe better said, multiple times a day). I am experiencing incontinence. I have crohn's disease but have not had a flare in approx. 5 yrs.

any ideas???

Re: mucus type stools

It could maybe be from the Prednisone but did they do a stool sample test to make sure there is no infection or parasite infection present?

Wishing you luck and hope you feel better soon...JJ..

Cool Re: mucus type stools

thnx for the reply JJ. I have a dr. appt on the 29th. Hopefully this has passed by then, but if not, i'm sure he'll order tests. I'm hoping that it's nothing serious and just a virus. There is something going around.

I'll post if there are any changes.

Re: mucus type stools

Oh there are some nasty bugs going around from stomach to sinus with coughs that last almost a month. What a crazy year!!! Hubby had a cold and the cough is still there, been over 2 weeks....


Good luck at the Drs. and feel better...JJ...

Re: mucus type stools

Oh Lordy..don't tell me your coming down with "the bug". Hubby is still coughing like crazy even with Musinex. If he doesn't feel better I am having him go to see his Dr. as he has never coughed like this.

I'm trying soooo hard to fight it but I know I feel it coming. Been so tired and sometimes chilly and then wake up a bit sweaty.... Whatever is going around just doesn't want to leave.

Make sure you rest and keep warm. Feel better....JJ...
