**tmi post sorry** mucus after bowel movement

I had excision surgery 6 months ago and slowly but surely my symptoms have returned. I also have a new symptom which is really thick mucus after a bowel movement, almost like jelly (tmi sorry) my bowel symptoms are worse than they've ever been as are my bladder symptoms. Has anyone else experienced this and knows what it could be? Thanks in advance x

Hello,

Yes have experienced it! I think you need to go to your GP to discuss it and/or consultant. I have endo on the bowel and my consultant believes this is what is causing it - I have a lap next week to double check what is going on. I hope you get some answers soon :( xxx

Hi thanks for your reply, I had stage 3/4 endo removed in September but was told there wasn't any on my bowel or bladder although I did have it on my pod and left ureter. I've only seen my consultant once since then which was in January and cos the mini pill wasn't helping my symptoms they recommended zoladex which I'm still waiting to start over 2 months later, they're useless lol xx

Hey Lizzyxx,

I have the same issue I am on zoladex now and on my last months treatment. My symptoms got better at first and only now are they returning but with some blood. I am waiting for a scan to confirm but I believe now my endometriosis is shrinking the bit on my bowel is too, causing pain before during and after a motion, with quite a bit of blood and mucus.

I hope you get your Zoladex soon, it is a marvellous drug although like all the other drugs does have side effects. Best of luck with it all xx

Hi Lizzy, I am very new to this forum and the illness, but I too have similar issues.

I had my first lot of surgery in Jan 2018, and I am now back to having more problems. At the time they fitted me with a mirena coil to help with pain and it did work for a while. However now, like you, every time I have a bowl movement I have lots a mucus. My Dr thinks this is because my coil has slipped... Could this be the same for you? I am due a scan to check on my coil, but I am so confused as to where the mucus is coming from and why it only happens during a bowel movement. I would really appreciate any advice you have.

Hi i have, it was caused by the anti-inflammatory meds I was taking which has now given me colitis. X
