It's normal and its just mucus coming out. It happened to me the entire time I had my ileo before my j pouch was hooked up. If you have a loop ileo, you can even pass small amounts of stool sometimes. When I had my temporary loop ileo, the first time that happened to me I freaked out because my surgeon never mentioned that you will have mucus passing out your bum from time to time. They really need to tell people these things before they leave the hospital!
DX UC - in 2005 when I was 37
Tried every drug-even Remicade-Tried diets-nothing worked-wanted my life back!
Step 1: J-pouch surgery (Laparoscopic restorative proctocolectomy w/ temporary diverting loop ileostomy) 6-25-10
Step 2: Take down surgery (Ileostomy reversal) 10/8/10
No more UC and no more drugs!! Very happy with my results of this surgery-got my life back! :)
