Fluid discharge from anus. Taking metamucil for hemorrhoids. Incomplete bowel movements, constipation

over the past year and half I have had moisture / liquid coming from my anus . I have had my stool tested and checked for lactose intolerence and both were negative in terms of any bacteria or intolerence. I have seen a gastro specialist and had a sigmoid. All he found was hemmoroid and said it was minor so just take metamucil . Also in the past before this occured my bowel movement occured about 2-3 times a week. Now it is everyday and I have felt I had incomplete emptying. After I had taken some metamucil it has gotten better but I still have some straining and sitting at the toilet. I also find before I feel I have to go to the bathroom when I release gas the anus and buttocks region feels moist and I checked the intergluteal cleft, there is definitely moisture and wetness in the area. I have searched online and had many people have similiar symptoms

hello maple welcome to health care magic
thanks for your query
as per my knowledge stool normally contains a small amount of mucus, but passing stools with visible amounts of mucus could be from one of several different diseases or conditions. Mucus in the stool is a common symptom of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and ulcerative colitis (a form of inflammatory bowel disease), and you have seen the doctor and have they have told hemorrhoid so go for its treatment but avoid all possible food which can cause constipation stool present in intestine for longer duration cause irritation and produce mucus take plenty of food rich in fiber it can be cured with right homeopathic treatment
