It means the colon is being "active"....it could be from IBS or from inflammation.
If you're having bms with urges to go and it's only mucus...I'd say it's because of inflammaton.
You're not on any oral 5ASA meds??
The other thing...are you meaning first thing in the morning or during the day? The suppository can "look" like greasy mucus.
You pegged another aspect....."the anxiety of seeing it is nearly giving me D!"....slow your thinking about
that down a bit for you'll perpetuate the cycle.
As well...ask your doctor for a 'script
of dicyclomine...it'll slow down some of the spasming and maybe help with the mucus.
My take on it.
*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 4(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
