I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this, but am glad you found a place where you can talk with other ostomates about
these issues. Welcome! We talk toilet 24/7!
I had my ileostomy for 8 months before having my rectum removed, and I would pass liquid mucus, but never a mucus ball. That does sound painful.
I hope you find some answers that will bring you relief.
P.S. - My sister is going to Scotland this summer to celebrate her 40th birthday. She is so excited!
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Small Bowel Obstruction Surgery in '08, caused by adhesions.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
