My son Tyler who is 17 has an ileostomy (temporary) until May for reconnection and a possible resection done. Lately Tyler has told me he is having output through his bottom, mucus stuff but he also what he says looks like bile.....I know mucus we were told is expected but BILE??

Hey Tyler's Mom, I am not sure about the bile, is he sure that is what it is?? Mucus is pretty normal, but he should tell his doctor about it and see what they think. It probably isn't anything to worry about.

I'm not too sure of what the difference between mucus and bile is, but I occasionally get blood. Only just found out that thats because I still have some Crohnes in my rectum. I didn't know that I did...

Favourite Quote: Unfortunately my quote (while perfectly acceptable in Australia) contains language that is considered unacceptable in some countries outside of Australia. I guess that's what happens when you comment on a forum used by many different cultures. So I've provided a link to the Wikipedia entry for the quote instead.

Be aware this thread started in 2004.

Please don't bring up older threads like this. It's much better to start a new thread on your chosen topic otherwise people don't realise that they're responding to people who probably left the board years ago.

Thanks :)

Oh, yeah, Shaz, I was just about to respond and then noticed the date of the original post. Likely the issue is solved by now. Good catch. Rosemary
