As suebear said - the mucus is totally normal even with your end ileo and there's even more with the loop. However, your pain sounds like a blockage from what I've read of the symptoms of a blockage. I'm sure someone that's had one or has better knowledge will come along and give better information. What kind of output are you having in your bag? Is the pain constant or does it come in waves? Is it moving or in the same place? My understanding is that if it's coming in waves it's a typical sign of a blockage. My partial blockage I could feel it move through as the pain migrated with the blockage. Walk, drink hot tea, drink grape juice, use a heating pad, rub your tummy to try to help move things along, hang over an exercise ball (or anything to reverse gravity), take a hot bath, stop taking anything that slows movement through your GI tract (imodium, metamucil, etc), get on all fours and move your hips from side to side, lay on your back and pull your knees up and rock from side to side. There is a chance that it could be caused by an adhesion. Did you eat anything that could be causing it? How is your hydration/dehydration level?
I hope this is just a partial food blockage and passes soon. With everything else that you've been through already you don't need to have anything else happen.
