anal mucus discharge

Description
Anal mucous discharge is a symptom in which a person has mucous coming out of his anus (either mucous by itself, or mucous mixed with stool/poop). Infection and autoimmune disease (when a person's own immune system is over-active against himself) can cause anal mucous discharge.

In some instances this may be a sign of other disease but most likely benign. You may need a follow up colonoscopy or biopsy but this will be determined by your physician,

I had a hemorrhoids operation, the hemorrhoids were removed. This was 5 months ago, since then I have anal mucus discharge. What can I do about it?

See the surgeon

Anus
Seems late to be still healing. Depends though on what type of hemorrhoid surgery was performed. See your surgeon for an exam to check your healing status. Rarely scarring and narrowing can occur at the surgical site.

Dr. David Drewitz answered:

Can too much castor oil cause anal mucus discharge? The first 36 hours it was a yellowish color with a little diarrhea, after which, it turned black.

Yes...

Anus
Castor oil has stimulant laxative properties causing forceful contractions of the intestine and violent diarrhea. The intestine contains cells that secrete mucous providing a lubricant function. I suspect the castor oil has led to a overproduction of mucous which you are seeing in the anal discharge. If your stool is black - seek medical attention to rule out bleeding from the GI tract.
