Pooping Mucas
#1
I was at a BBQ in the early summer and had some food poisoning that knocked me down for 3 days. After that, my stomach and gut haven't been the same. I have had strong stomach pains so I was checked for an ulcer but it was just my stomach being badly irritated. I have had gas and diarrhea frequently so I have to eat the BRAT diet when it happens. My doctor gave me antibitoics that got most of the rest of it. The only problem I still have is pooping mucas. Every morning I get this yellowish clear stuff and over the day it builds. I have to go to the toilet if I have gas because mucus comes out if I try to pass it.

Passing mucus is a sign of inflammation. Have you mentioned this to your doctor and taken a sample for analysis? They should be able to identify if there is unfriendly bacteria there in high quantities. If there is then you may need more antibiotics or further testing.

The doctor did tests before he gave the antibiotics. Thats why I got them. Do you think I still have bacteria there?

It sure sounds like it. How long have you been on the antibiotics? If you've already taken all of them, then it's time to go back to the doctor to get another round or a different round to kick the rest of it. There's obviously still something going on in there that's not good.

It could be that the infection is antibiotic resistant and needs more antibiotics. It could also be that your immune system is over active. That is why it is a good idea to have the doctor run tests. In both situations, they can provide some medications to reduce the symptoms. They might also be able to cure it. The longer you leave it, the harder it can be to recover so avoid delaying and get back to your doctor.

I went today so they are going to call me with results. Wish me luck.

Daxmir did you find out anything about your results yet? I would be curious to know how things turned out for you. Hopefully it was nothing too serious and you will be fine.

I am so glad I found this forum! I have wondered for years why it seemed, at times, that I was passing mucus with my movements. I never knew this was a sign of inflammation. I have not been clinically diagnosed with IBS, but I do have many issues.

This is going to sound odd, but . . . does it matter what color of mucus? Any thoughts would help me greatly. Thanks

Although it's not something to be taken lightly. Mucus can be occasionally found in your stool if you bowels are irritated. I would say that like above poster said. Giving your stomach a rest and following a lighter diet for a few weeks can put things back into the right place.
