Five years ago i had . Last year i had 2 blockages resulting in bowel resection. Since then I have anal discharge after most bms & constipation often.
Probably mucous: Mucous is a natural lubricant produced by the colon when you are constipated. So i suspect your constipation is the culprit.

Have anal fistula for 16 yrs. 10 surgeries haven't fixed it. No ibd or health issues. Looking at bowel resection. Opinions please.....
Seek experienced Drs: If you havent already, seek a colorectal surgeon who has seen and dealt with these complex problems. Mri's can sometimes identify other branching points or tracts. If your current symptoms aren't too bad, living with the condition is an option. Seton's can help drain and minimize the baseline state.

What should I expect in the days and weeks following my lower anterior resection (lar)? Is there anything I should be prepared for?
Depends: It mostly depends on whether you have a diverting ileostomy or not ("a bag"). If you don't, then the main changes relate to the increased frequency of bowel movements. Many patients have less warning that a bowel movement is coming. Most patients have a low energy level for a few weeks that gets better. Watch for signs of infection (wound drainage, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What kind of IV access (regular, picc, midline?) is typically used for abdominal anterior resection surgery?
IV access: If you are relatively healthy and do not require central line, the most is needed peripheral IV access. Your anesthesiologist knows the surgeon, his skills and potential for blood loss, ( which is unlikely). Anesthesiologist will make decision what kind of access he/she needs. When the patient is asleep he can start second IV if nessasary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
