Excessive Mucus in Stool

Hi, all. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced a lot of mucus in their stool? Sometimes I'll have to go to the bathroom just to pass straight mucus. I know it's gross and I think I'm calling my dr in the morning but was wondering if anyone had any comments or suggestions?

Re: Excessive Mucus in Stool

Do you have colitis? I have UC and I get that during a flare, I sometimes use a suppository to make me discharge excess mucus before I go to bed. It is common for people with UC to have this issue.

Well, to be honest that is part of the job! With either condition the mucous will present it self when there is inflammation in the intestinal track. I would not be too concerned your probably going through a mini flare...if your in pain see your GI

I have the same problem and sometimes the mucous has an unpleasant odor. Dont know what to do about it. I am on Sulfasalazine for my U.C.
