There is some white substance that comes with my stool for the past two days. It looks like mucous. Should I be worried?

Stool mucus or more?: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies should help address if mucus white bits you're seeing are "worms" (pinworms, etc.) so rx can begin. ...Read more

My stool was half black and half brown and it had a lot of stringy substance all over it & also smelled bad is everything okay with me?

Maybe & maybe not: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums... Persistent melena (without obvious cause) & symptoms warrants evaluation ...Read more

Everytime I use the toilet 1-2  balls of stool exit &when I wipe the tissue is covered w/a watery brown (almost mucus like at times)substance.Serious?

Most likely not: This sounds like mucorrhea. This is not serious in of itself but is there any blood?

I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor so that it can be further defined and make sure you have nothing serious. ...Read more

I always feel pain in abdomen that comes and goes,and it's very hard for me to release stool though my stool isnt hard + contains mucosal substance.?

Need tests: This is a complicated question. When I lived in Turkey we had salmonella/shigella/ camplobacter/ e. coli and numerous bowel complaints among Americans there that they didn't have in the States. Sanitation was a big problem. However, diarrhea was the rule and not stool retention. Irritable bowel syndrome is likely and your local doctors will be able to evaluate you well. ...Read more

After trying to pass a stool with no relief I wiped and there was caramel colored discharge/mucus looking substance on the tissue. What could this be?

Mucus: This indeed was most likely mucus and because of associated straining there may have been a tiny amount of stool particles and blood products mixed in giving it that color. To avoid straining make sure that your diet contains adequate fluid and fiber. You can take a daily softener like colace (docusate sodium) and insert a glycerin rectal suppository if needed. See your MD if problems recur. ...Read more
