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 took a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) and an hour later i went to release my bowels and i saw i had mucus mixed in with my stool. Should be concerned?
Terrible constipation for quite some time. Can't go unless use mag citrate or enemas. Now have small black stool with mucus. Colonoscopy on wed?
Right idea; see GI: You could have Constipation predominant IBS or an inflammatory problem of the bowel causing possible blood and/or mucus to appear. Let a Gastroenterologist (GI) interview you and assess your risk factors. It sound like a Colonoscopy is a good idea, but that test should be done once it is clear what diagnoses you are trying to rule out (especially at your young age). Good luck. ...Read more
Last bm was 2/4. Dr prescribed laxative and it did not work. Just used an enema and bm was enema fluid & blood tinged white mucus. What else can I do?
Daily fiber...: Make sure you have adequate fiber and fluid intake. Metamucil or similar 1-2 times daily with a full glass of water is a good start along with regular exercise. If this does not help then MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) 1 capful in a glass of water 1-2 times daily would be next. If this does not work you should see your doctor. If you have blood in your stool, vomiting or weight loss you should see your doctor. ...Read more
Was given an enema at e.R. Before noon today, after taking magnesium citrate without success. I am now pooing bloody mucus at 9 p.M. Please help.
White opaque clear slime/mucus came out whn I farted while peeing. Had a saline enema the night before. Slime had slight fishy smell.
Mucus: This mucus secretion was most likely the result of mild irritation/inflammation brought on by the enema that you administered. It's a benign reaction and should subside without any treatment. If constipation is a persistent and definite change in your usual bowel pattern, consult your physician for evaluation. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
