Hi thanks for the reply I haven't been told I have ibd yet I go for the camera on Monday hope they give me some answers.

Mucous and blood sound like inflammation from IBD. Are you hydrating well? Have you worked on changing your diet to see if you’re reacting to something?

Stress is a huge factor for me. It’s hard to control but necessary. Yoga Nidra helped me. Meditation might be useful. Definitely stay hydrated. Good luck.

Sorry to hear of your Crohn's diagnosis. At the age of 63 yrs. now, in the early part of this century my younger brother lost his battle with Crohn's. I was with him as much as I could be during the latter years. He was one of the first to be diagnosed as Crohn's due to it's not being known at the time; ulcers were considered the main culprit. How wrong that turned out to be. Diagnosed in his early to mid 20's he was an active person, playing baseball, basketball, had friends, between hospital stays. As he got older his disease progressed; they removed a large part of his intestines and connected him to an ostomy bag. Somewhere along the line he had colon cancer to boot. So they removed everything connected and sutured his anus closed. The last year his digestive system was removed except for a short stoma connecting his stomach to an ostomy bag, feeding through jugular. Infections due to the high sugar of the formula keep him hospitalized. Until the end. He was 49. Actually for his disease, at that time, he had a good long run at life. And he made the most of it. When not in the hospital he was at the gym, building up his body for when he would be flat on his back for weeks at a time. I have a niece, his daughter, we are very close. Fortunately we only have colitis. I say that now knowing that I have a colonoscopy coming next Friday so I'm a bit apprehensive. She is the last of my family bloodline so I'm giving her all she may need to know regarding my conditions and those of her dad's that she was unaware of. She has a son, so far he's very healthy, a bit too much but hey, having some to spare is good if one has to be hospitalized.

Did you get your diagnosis?

Hi I ad the camera test all was clear

Hi...I have the exact same looking stools at the moment and I'm very worried about this. I'm happy for you that everything was clear with you.

Can you please tell me what your doctor told you why this could be?. What is the reason behind these mucousy stools??

Hi try not to worry I was the same!!!

It's a sign of inflamation in the bowels I ad every test going and all came back clear!

I bileave mine was all down to stress and anxciety!

Are you stressed at the minute?

Sorry know this was quite long ago, hoping you can help. I have exactly the same as the picture except blood is slightly more visible. Is there actually clear blood in this picture because I can’t see clearly

Hi, how are you? You made the exams?

Hard to tell from the photo, didn't they give you an occult stool sample kit? I have colitis and often have blood on my stool, not in it. My gyno...proctologist said I have striations along the walls of the anal canal that when pushing "cargo" though, the walls expand and the striations leak blood onto the stool. It is painful but hydrocortisone suppositories will ease the pain quite effectively.

It is hard to tell from the photo to be honest. I'm having more recent episodes of bleeding but just keeping records of when it happens. Blood count is ok so not worried and it doesn't happen all the time
