Doctor :   hi
User :   Oh hi
Doctor :   how can i help you?
User :   I didnt think i was going to get through
User :   Well I copied what I need to say already so I will just paste it
Doctor :   ok
User :   Hi I hope this actually gets to somebody. Im getting worried about my health because since Sunday I have not been able to use the bathroom to pass a stool. I can urinate fine but I can't do the other. Every so often I get a stomach ache that only last 1-3 minutes and then I am able to go to the bathroom and pass something but it is not a stool. It comes out looking more like plant algae that u see in lakes and such, and some of it looks like a clear mucus with some blood in it. There isn't a lot of blood, but it's scaring me none-the less. I haven't been vomiting at all, no weakness or dizziness, and it is NOT painful when I release whatever that is coming out of me. Since yesterday the stomach aches seemed to have slowed down. They are less frequent now, but still have the same result coming out. I am a 28 year old male if that helps at all.
User :   And when i go to the bathroom and do that it is in small amounts
