    Red face Stool problem - Please help


    I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I think I have.

    When I go to the toilet my stools are normal shape/colour but it's like they are pieces of stool put together to make a big ones. A bit like having lots of peices of clay and pushing them together. Someone told me this is a sign of slight constipation. However the stools have like ridges between the peices and like gaps and in those gaps there is like a darker coloured furry thin stuff. If I tap at the stool this stuff seperates from the stool and looks stringy and a bit mucousy.

    Sorry to be so graphic but does anyone have any idea what is this? I have no bleeing or pain.

    Thank you all for your time

    when in doubt ..get it checked out...go to the dr..they can have you do a fecal occult test to check for blood in the stool...also if you think constipatioin is partly to blame ...drink lots of water..1/2 ounce for every lb of body helps
