I am currently experiencing what Ive always assumed is mucus when I go for a BM, in fact today, I went and only this mucus came out, it has a rather weird smell to it, I do bleed still also.
Back about 12 months or so ago I went for a rectal exam due to the bleeding and the doc said that I had a small cut, likely from enema nozzles, he gave me antibiotics which destroyed me with diarreah for 3 weeks, he mentioned it had cleared up, yet I still bleed daily to this day.
How do I differentiate if I am experiencing mucus due to the UC or if I fact I have an infection and the mucus is actually pus? What are the differences between both and would I have additional symptoms if it was an infection?
I currently take Imuran 200mg and Mesalazine oral max dose + 1g suppository and budesonide foam.
