Hi. I'm a 23 year old healthy female. In November I started noticing a watery discharge from the rectum.:confused: The answer to the question you probably have, no I haven't had anything near my rectum,just the thought of having anything near that area makes me shreek! :eek:When I can't go to the restroom constantly it gets uncomfy to walk. It's not so watery to wear its in my underwear, It's just a discharge that's clear an sticks to me.I can go to the bathroom an wipe all day long, and 10 mins later I can go back to the bathroom an more has came out. I don't know what this could be. I saw about 4 different ER doctors.One put me on diarrhea medicine when I don't even have diarrhea. I haven't saw blood,but my bowls are different everyday,even the color. I saw a gastro doctor and he put me on a suppository for inflammation of the rectum,but that's just uncomfortable the thought of putting something in your rectum. He gave me 3 samples of the medicine to try an wrote me an rx if it worked. It didn't work! He said he really couldn't tell me what's wrong until I have a colonscopy done. About a month ago,I guess things are just getting worse.I started having really bad left and right side pain and sometimes pain in the abdomen as well. Saw another doctor an she believes I have an anal fissue. An anal fissue that has caused a discharge for 2 months now? :mad:So I tried stool softners and she told me to try mineral oil bc the side pains could be caused my constapation. Still have the discharge!! Saturday night looking in the mirror I now notice a white coat on my tongue with red bumps on the back of it. I don't know if that has anything to do with whats wrong with me. Your gasto tract of your body does start from your mouth to your anus. Ive been so worried,Ive had bloodwork an urine test done so far and everything was normal. My palms sweat all day from me worrying how serious can this be? Noone seems to take me seriously. I don't want this to be cancer an be to late. I dunno Im young and worried.:o

  • have you been on antibiotics? the white spots could indicate thrush and the discharge could be c-diff. have you ever taken a sample of this discharge to the dr to have it tested? if not then do. and please consider the colonscopy, it may be the only way to find out what's going on. you will get meds and you will not remember the procedure.

  • I was on antibiotics Oct-Nov ish for a bad UTI that i couldn't get rid of. I tried almost everything..I thought I could have proctitis from it? I work for a pediatrician and we get seen for free. He exzamined my throat and says it isnt thrush its more viral so I just have to go away on its own? Its been weeks and its still there,my tounge isnt as white just towards the back where the red bumps are. I also was seen this past Friday and thought I could get a second opinion bc I work for 7 doctors. He sent me for a KUB of my stomach and it all came back normal as well. Still having the discharge! Tomorrow I go see a surgeon,lets hope he sets me up for a colonscopy,this is just nuts and aggervating.
