Hello! Ithink some white tissue which you are mentioning is mucus. You need to take some laxative may be stool softener like isabghola 2-3 tsf/ day at night with a glass of water which may be increased gradually for complete relief. If that doesnt help then stimulant like picosulphate or bisacodyl can be added. Take lots of fibres in diet (salaad) and lots of fluid also. I hope this will help you. keep in touch
