What can cause a pseudo narrowing of colon? And what would be the treatment? Fiber supplements cause more mucus in stool and irritate me more.
Hard to say: Hi JonT, Sorry to hear that you have been feeling poorly. I think this is a topic better discussed in depth with your primary physician. "Pseudo narrowing" is a little bit of an ambiguous term and requires some clarification from your doctor as to what exactly they mean when they say pseudo-narrowing. Further testing may be needed to determine if you have an actual stricture. Hope this helps.
Should be evaluated: There can be multiple reasons for mucous in the stool and further reasons why it is orange in color. Causes of mucous in the stool can range from benign to serious. More information would be needed, and you should have this evaluated. It may be irritation in the colon, a polyp, colon inflamation-colitis. Most of the time occasional mucous in the stool may be benign- but must be evaluated.
Suppositories: Yes it is quite possible that the oil and mucus in your stooll, is due to suppositories.
Blood yes: Hemorrhoids can bleed - as many internal hemorrhoids to. Internal hemorrhoids are inside and only sometimes come outside. These usually don't hurt but can bleed. Most people with painful hemorrhoids are external hemorrhoids. If you are having mucus, however, there could be something more going on and a rectal exam and possible colonoscopy are critical to further evaluate for other diseases.
Perhaps...: Enemas are almost never used in my pediatric practice, so the 1st concern is what triggered the need for an enema? I would never recommend an enema for your child unless specifically ordered by your pediatrician. The type of enema used may have caused the mucous--or perhaps this mucous was due to the irritant effect of whatever made the use of an enema necessary. If bloody, call your doctor now.
Stool tests needed: You need a stool test. Blood test would check for anemia from bleeding or a systemic infection but you need a stool test.

Irritable bowel: The colon is lined with goblet cells which produce mucus if irritated or inflamed. Periodic abdominal pain and mucus is common in irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) as long as there is no blood seen. Change in diet, season, travel, stress can cause irritable bowel syndrome. Abdominal pain is also a common symptom of as long as the is no red flags i.e. Weight loss, rectal bleeding, vomiting or fever.
NG: Unusually enough....I've seen quite a bit of this in my HIV practice in the males predominantly. It turns out in my practice the overwhelming cause is rectal gonorrhea.
