Mucus on stool: Hi stephanie, it is likely what you described. You have mucus in your colon and if you have constipation, it likely means your colon sucked as much water out of your stool as it could due to dehydration. Likely nothing to be concerned about. Drink plenty of water. If you start to have nausea/diarrhea/pain, probably a good idea to see your doctor. Hope that helps.
