Diarrhea and mucus: Frequent bowel movements with mucus may be a sign of inflammation of the colon lining. It may signal colitis or possibly Inflammatory bowel disease. I would see your primary physician who may recommend a colonoscopy for your acute findings.

Laceration: Is there redness surrounding the wound? Is there swelling or evidence of underlying fluid? Are you up to date with tetanus? It may be serous drainage with healing, but if symptoms of redness and swelling, may indicate infection requiring drainage and possible antibiotics.
