ok so i keep passing clear liquid mucus with no stool at all... just clear mucus!!! this happens randomly, sometimes lasting for days, sometimes just one episode every few days and has been going on for a few months now. it alternates with diarhea and constipation. my anal area has also been kind of sore i guess you could say. i also have some serious cramping going on in my lower right abdomen. i got a lot of tests done, and the only thing that has come back as questionable is that i have a sligthly low wbc count, low sodium levels, low bun levels, and eslightly elevated liver function levels. i go to get a colonocopy done this week, and i am scared to death that i have colon cancer even though im 21. what do these symptoms sound like to you guys?
thanks in advance

  • The colonoscopy will help detect any blockage of the intestines. Also, the gall bladder suggestion is a VERY good idea.Either way, get to a gastroenterologist ASAP!My mother had those same symptoms, and if it's not treated it could get very badly infected.MAKE SURE they check, double check, and triple check the gall bladder.Mom was in bed sick for almost 10 months, went from 170 pounds to 120, and when they FINALLY got the ***n thing out, it was gangrene! Especially with the lower right abdominal pain, that's a BIG red flag for gall bladder malfunction/infection/dying. Don't freak out, but make sure you REALLY press the matter when you get your colonoscopy. Good luck, and if you get it fixed, make sure and let us know!:D Sheena

  • I find that certain fatty foods I eat can cause the 'mucus' thing - but, I also thought it was gallbladder since it ran in my family... Talk to a Gastro specialist - they may recommend a battery of tests - if they thing gallbladder then they will do a blood test, then a heitoscan then a endoscopy. Mine ended up being a peptic ulcer, symptoms are similar to gallbladder and I did nto have 'classic' heart burn symptoms. Note: if it could be your gallbladder pepto bimal's active ingrediant (bismuth) aids in the processing of the bile in your gallbladder. So maybe try that for a few days? (it will turn your stool a dark green btw)Hope you get well!

  • It would be wise to do a detox by dr natura.. There is also a website by Raymond Francis. He also wrote a book, Never Be Sick Again. Completely changed my life. Bottom line - If your doctor doesnt know what is wrong with you, he is uneducated in health and nutrition. You are either experiencing a massive deficiency or toxicity to something, or both. Here's the big question: Have you used a lot of antibiotics over the years? If you have, your answer will come through researching. I have found that using a high quality Pro-Biotics works wonders for this problem. You may experience gas, bloating, cramps, constipation.... all signs that the probiotics are working because there's a war going on inside between friendly bacteria and bad bacteria... and it will go away when the friendly bacteria take over. I would also check out the website by MERCOLA - Dr Joe Mercola. They sell the absolute best probiotic I have ever used. Works amazing.
