Thumbs down weird stuff in stool

Hey all. For the past 2 months now I've had what looks like shredded kleenex and "membrane" transparent looking stuff in my stool (TONS OF IT, SOME DAYS MORE THAN OTHERS). Is this mucus? It's like the outer sehll of a popcorn seed, it feels like its very hard, but u can break it apart and see through it if u lift it to the light. Its on the TP when I wipe. sometimes it's yellow in color, sometimes its clear, and some of the membrane looking pieces are like a very dull dull red/pink color. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS IS?

Some food that you eat does not digest well and passes right through almost without change---- it could be something you ate. But, the Gastro system does put out mucus that is passed--- it's not usually hard but soft. Dairy products make you secret alot more mucus(not yogurt)!!!

I suggest you start taking a bowel forming agent like Metamucil that contains a natrual fiber-- psyllium seed husk. It's safe to take daily and absorbs fluid and binds the stool together and sort acts like a lubricant when having a BM. Equate from Wal Mart works just as well.

God Bless---Harry
