JA: Hi. How can we be of help?
Customer: boringly orrible...i have a lot of constipation lately. Also im reading up on mucus from the backside. Usually part of constipation but sometime not. I can be profuse and a bit messy. My diet is good generally and Im very active. It feels like my gut closes down for a day or two.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Not been to GP. Im on lustral.......sertraline and take ibuprofen for shoulder stiffness etc fairly regularly.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
