Chron's disease, passed gelatinous substance, pieces of meat in it. Treatment?

I have Crohn s Disease and a host of other illness . I passed during the course of two days well over three feet of a gelatinous substance that resembled the shape of the large intestine . It was white to green in color and the first day had pieces of meat in it. The meat was like attached pieces of sliced raw meat and I had consumed no meat anytime close to the occurrence. Doctors, pathology , no one knows what this was. Any ideas?

Hello, terryandannamarie,
You state that you have been diagnosed with Crohn's disease along with
other health issues. Sorry to hear that. I hope you are currently getting
effective treatment to get the disease under control or remission.
I am not sure of the extent of your Crohn's involvement. As you are
aware, this can affect the entire intestinal tract, part of the small and
large bowel or entirely large bowel.Typical Crohn's affects the lower
portion of the small bowel called the terminal Ileum and the cecum which
is the beginning of the large bowel. If the inflammation is very active , you
can have a lot of mucus produced in the intestine. There is also malabsorption,
the food does not get fully digested because of lack of intestinal enzymes.
The meat product that you might have consumed a week ago , the residuals
may still stay longer and eventually comes out stringy mixed with mucus and
bile ,giving the green color.
If you have narrowing due to inflammation , the shape of the semiformed stool
can be what your description says.
Ask a lot of questions about your Crohn's and the more you learn about what
portions of your intestinal tract are affected, it helps to plan proper treatment.
As of today , unfortunately there is no definite cure for Crohn's but there are
very effective biological agents and immune modulator drugs that can keep
the disease under remission and prevent complications.
Hope this helps you. I also recommend the Crohn's and colitis foundation
of America's website for you to visit and learn more about Crohn's.
I wish you the very best.
