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. ...Read more

I gave myself an enema I am now having bright red bloody mucus being eliminated. Do I need to worry?
Yes.: Go to the ER now. You may have perforated your rectum or injured an artery. This needs immediate attention even if it is not painful. You may have something as simple as hemorrhoids but if you did injure the rectum that can be potentially very serious, even life threatening. If you felt resistance when introducing the enema but continued despite that resistance you likely suffered trauma. ...Read more

Hi, I recently saw a lump of mucus in my stool but the mucus had a small black bug in it (moving) should I be worried?
I don't think you need to worry about bugs living in your intestinal tract. If the bug was alive and moving around, I would suspect that it got in there from the bathroom or around the cracks of the toilet seat. Insects are not known to be able to live and breed inside the human digestive tract. Hope this helps ...Read more

It is very highly unlikely that you have colon cancer. Drink enough water so that your urine is colorless and watery. 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
