  • Orange mucus from intestine

    I have a question regarding mucus from intestines. I'm 29 year old woman and have jelly-like orange-brown mucus during bowel movements. It's sticky, rubbery and it's separated from stool. I'm also constipated and have painful bowel movements. I'm sometimes bloated, I look like I'm pregnant. This has been happening for about a year and it's getting worse. Last month I felt a hard oval lump, about 8cm long, in my abdomen, close to my left ovary. The lump doesn't hurt....

    Before thanksgiving was having some pains after eating. Went to family dr. sent me to get ultrasound and blood work. All came back normal, so sent me to do a HIDA scan. This came back that the gallbladder was not functioning fully. After seeing the surgeon we decided to remove, it was found out after that it was in fact inflamed, so removal was necessary.

  • Anal Monsoon

    Since about 10 AM today I have been violently expelling liquids from my rectum. It's very frequent, very loud/violent, and sometimes I have to go to the bathroom within 10 or even 5 minutes after already going. This has been happening all day and I have lost count of how many times I've been, but I'm pretty sure it's above 10 at this point. My stomach doesn't hurt a whole lot, maybe around 3 or 4 on a pain scale from 1-10 with 10 being the worst. However my anus stings so damn....
