A little background:
I have Crohn's. Never had bleeding, or mucous or weight loss. Just diarhea. I also have IBS so I have lived with it for years and years before I found out I had Crohn's (through a fistula). This morning for the first time in several months I had a normal bm and it was almost totally covered with white stuff. I guess that's the mucous. Is it something I should be concerned about?
Seems strange it would pop up now because for the first time since Easter I haven't been running any low-grade fevers. My doctor doesn't seem to be concerned about
fevers or "d" because of the IBS also. I'm tired of getting all worked up about
something and it turns out to be nothing but I fear that if I don't stay on top of it I'll spiral downhill again. Don't want anymore guts cut out.
