i am 24 and have been diagnosed for a little over two years now with ulcerative colitis. last colonoscopy was about
two years ago. i am on mezavant, 4 pills daily. also on vancocin right now to treat a suspected c diff infection.
i am not in a flare. no red blood. no diarrhea... yet on my stool there is usually always mucus with thin black streaks in it. it is not mixed into the stool unless it is quite loose. simply on it. its mostly the first stool of the day or the first stool in a while, after i go a bit more it becomes clear. still i am terrified of what this could be. i feel fine, no flaring, no diarrhea, no weight loss, etc... like i said. i just read another girl with this symptom being concerned about
cancer and now i feel so scared.
my gastro said she wants to do another colonoscopy if this doesn't go away to check for internal hemmorhoids (which i know i have), but i am so scared right now i really need some help. i have an anxiety disorder so it's so easy for my mind to go from zero to ten in seconds flat.
anyone experience this black streaked mucus? i really appreciate anything you can tell me :(
