In brief: Pink jelly in stool
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 address if "pinkish" material is blood. In any case, you sound appropriately concerned. Get checked.
