Colonoscopy: The best person to determine what is going on is the colonoscopist. Have they not discussed the results of this with you. Usually they will biopsy randomly if there are no definitive points of abnormal mucosa visible. Call and talk to your GI doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have been experiencing loose stools and what looks like mucus in my stools. This has never happened to me before, should I take Imodium (loperamide)?

No: Be checked by your doctor and have your stool analyzed and consider a colonoscopy. Imodium (loperamide) may slow down diarrhea but masks the underlying cause and it would likely return. All the best sorting through this problem. Stay healthy. ...Read more

I've had loose stools with mucus and clear mucus on its own come out of anus for a week shall i see a doctor?

Go see your doctor: Any time symptoms persist, it's always a good idea to check in w/your family doctor (or gp on your side of the pond). Loose stools or diarrhea is more worrisome when accompanied by stomach pain, blood, fever, sweats, chills, etc. Think back to where you last ate before getting sick. Ask your mates if anyone else is feeling poorly. Some anti-diarrhea medications may be available w/o prescription. ...Read more

Hi I have mucus after bm on and off and loose stools once a week. Worried about colon cancer. Should I worry?

No: It is highly unlikely that you have colon cancer. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Are very foul smelling loose stools in infants without fever, mucus or blood a sign of Amoebic dysentery ?

Are very foul smelling loose stools in infants without fever, mucus or blood a sign of Amoebic dysentery ?

Amoeba Shmomoeba...: Think about it this way: Whatever is causing the diarrhea, an infant is very sensitive to fluid loss, and other losses too.So if it has been excessive and persistent and the baby won't take enough fluids by mouth to compensate for the losses(dry mouth, decreased tears and urine volume, acting cranky and tired), it's time to see a doctor. Let him figure out the cause, whether amoeba or just a virus ...Read more

Burning after bowle movement. Little blood in stools. Mucus blood on tissue paper. Stools constintly charging from diarea to loose stools very gassy?

Should get evaulated: Being a 26 y/o female, it is likely that you have irritable bowel syndrome and with the frequent loose stools can cause significant anal/perianal irritation, at times bleeding from it. If you have been having symptoms for yrs, ibs is likley. If this is new, something else maybe causing your symptoms such as ulcerative colitis etc..I recommend consulting your doc for an eval. Good luck. ...Read more

My 5 month old daughter has had some loose stools. No fever, eating normally, and active. She has a red bottom, relieved with diaper cream. Could it be teething?

Maybe: I can be hard to determine the exact cause of an infants symptoms... It might be related to teething or it might be a cold. Please monitor your child closely and give palliative care: 1. Cold compresses 2. Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) per the label's directions. 3. Maintain hydration, plain water is ok. 4. Call your pediatrician if the fever increases or persists for more than 3 days. ...Read more

My 12 week old baby had brown mucous in her loose stools. Is that normal? 

Hard to tell: It would be unwise to interpret your baby's mucus solely without looking at the entire picture. You may need to provide more detail as to how else your baby is doing - fever, feeding routine, blood present in stool, presence of pain, change in urination etc.? Brown mucus w/out other symptoms, otherwise, may not be something to worry. ...Read more

Symptoms: dark loose stools, difficult/incomplete evacuation, severe abdominal distention from trapped gas, mucous. Diagnosed IBS. I think Proctitis?

Symptoms: dark loose stools, difficult/incomplete evacuation, severe abdominal distention from trapped gas, mucous. Diagnosed IBS. I think Proctitis?

Typical IBS symptoms: As you suspect, these symptoms indeed are consistent with irritable bowel syndrome. But they aren't particularly suggestive of proctitis (inflmmation of the rectum). Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn's disease) can cause similar symptoms as IBS, and also can cause proctitis. So I suggest you raise these questions with the doctor who diagnosed IBS then follow her advice. Good luck! ...Read more
