I have had a heavy mucus discharge from my rectum for about six years. Had delorme procedure done now have no bowel control and still heavy mucus?

Recurrence. There is a high rate of recurrence after the delorme procedure, although it is a good way to avoid a major abdominal operation with less risk of complications. Discuss this with your colorectal surgeon, as you may benefit from other options if you have no major medical problems. Recurrences happen after "perineal" approaches like the delorme procedure more often than "transabdominal" approaches.
