What has been the result of your doctor's evaluations so far?
Have you had stool sample sent for testing ?
The passing of mucus is a signal of inflammation of the wall of the rectum or lower colon.. this may be the result of an infection or other type irritation of the wall such as the rectum or sigmoid colon...
You may want to consult a gastroenterologist if this is an ongoing problem...
Have you had any recent diarrhea?
I would advise that a stool sample be tested for culture/leukocytes/ C.diff toxin /ova and parasites...
You may need further evaluation such as a colonoscopy to evaluate for problems of the lower colon...
