    Re: Gross but stringy white puss or mucus on stools

    Sounds like Ulcerative Colitis. I have it as well, and you described my first symptoms quite well.

    Just some advice. .... If it IS UC, make sure you know all the meds doctors prescribe. I caution not to go on prednisone as a first line treatment...there are 5ASA meds that should be used both orally and rectally for good treatment. I've used them for over 16 years with MUCH success....never been on pred, and would refuse it unless the 5ASA stopped working. My UC has never spread beyond it's original diagnosis site. And that's a feather in my cap!

    You do have a say in treatment....be proactive in your treatment -- whether it's UC or not.

    Please keep us posted as to the outcome.

    Re: Gross but stringy white puss or mucus on stools

    Hi....what tests have you had done at this point?

    Are you having bleeding in the stool -- if so, it's not just IBS...although you could have that as well.

    Are you seeing a gastroenterologist? There is a medication called Bentyl (Bentyol in Canada) that is an antispasmotic which will help with some of those symptoms. A low dosage 10mg would be enough to help get you through until you know what you're dealing with.

    You might consider to change your diet somewhat to ease some of your symptoms. Just out of curiosity...what do you eat? Do you ingest any artificial sweeteners? If so, stop them, for they're a severe gut irritant.

    Just a few more suggestions.

    I've been told by a doctor that the white mucus is actually semenal fliud excreted by the prostate while pushing during defication.

    Re: Gross but stringy white puss or mucus on stools

    i hate to be discouraging, but my son has had similar problems for 1 1/2 yr now....the white mucous is sometimes green...looks like snot (speaking of gross). He has had colonoscopy, endoscopy, catscan, barium exray, stool tests, blood tests....NOTHING....2 gastro docs & an allergist...we r going to a 3rd gastro at a "teaching" hospital....he is very depressed....the bental didn't help him at all...neither has prednasone, rectal suppositories or anything....
